WASHINGTON, March 17, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Just beyond the halfway-mark in President Donald Trump's first 100 days in office, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka will give a major address at a National Press Club Luncheon on April 4, assessing opportunities around trade and infrastructure that could create good jobs, as well as possible threats to workers' rights. President Trumka will talk about the labor movement's strategy to create a unifying agenda for working families, and the importance of ensuring that all workers – union and non-union – have the right to bargain collectively for better wages and working conditions.
Since 2009, Richard Trumka has served as president of the 12.5 million-member American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO), the largest organization of labor unions in the country. An outspoken advocate for social and economic justice, President Trumka heads the labor movement's efforts to create an economy based on broadly shared prosperity and to hold government and employers accountable to working families.
Lunch will be served at 12:30 p.m., with remarks beginning at 1 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session ending at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $25 for Press Club members (members may purchase 2 tickets at this rate) and $39 for all other non-member tickets. Please click here to purchase tickets.
