Council 36 Mourns the Loss of Richard Trumka

Council 36 is sad to hear about the passing of AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka.

Trumka has been a fierce economic and social justice advocate for decades. Throughout his career, he fought for immigration and civil rights. He was dedicated to fighting for workers’ rights and his leadership will be greatly missed.

“Today, we lost a giant for workers across America. President Richard Trumka dedicated his life to advocating for workers across the United States. Our hearts are with the Labor community, and we send our deepest condolences to the Trumka family”, says Council 36 Executive Director Leticia Munguia.

Labor organizations across the country are mourning today. Tomorrow we will continue to fight in his honor. Rest in power brother Trumka.
