AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka delivered the following remarks at the opening meeting of the Commission on the Future of Work and Unions:
Good morning, everybody. It is my pleasure to welcome you to the first meeting of the AFL-CIO Commission on the Future of Work and Unions. I want to thank my partners, AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler and Executive Vice President Tefere Gebre, along with our affiliate union presidents, who represent the broad sectors of the economy and will help guide this important work.
We are also honored to be joined today by a number of labor leaders, academics, policy professionals, organizers and frontline workers who are shaping the future of work in their own unique way.
Our mission is to build bargaining power and provide economic security for millions of Americans amidst massive changes in the workplace, and to make sure we as a movement are effectively organized and structured to get it done. This includes figuring out how to rally and organize workers in the fastest-growing sectors of a rapidly-changing economy.

A union goon calling other people greedy.
I don’t hear much from Big Labor Union as I used to.
Wonder how they feel about those pesky open borders.
Robots have more personality than many of the human employees that Ive encountered lately.
That’s one steaming pile.
This sure sounds like anti-capitalism which is the hallmark of Marxism. Too many Kool-Aid drinkers needing to ride off with that comet.
Doesn’t the AFL-CIO leadership have great personal knowlege about greed?
Doesn’t the AFL-CIO leadership have great personal knowledge about greed?
Maybe when they get in there they will go on strike and shutdown Facebook,Twitter and Google.
What does a professional arm breaker know about technology.
The same thing your average MSM reporter knows.....nothing.
Three words that are music to my ears “RIGHT TO WORK”
"Ceterum censeo Islam esse delendam."
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)
