Experienced campaign operative to lead national and political engagement
(Washington, D.C., Thursday, January 11) The AFL-CIO announced today that starting Feb. 1, Julie Greene will head its Mobilization Hub, which leads the federations grassroots operation, including engaging state and local bodies in campaigns to support political candidates that stand with working people at all levels of government. She also will work directly with the labor federations affiliated unions to coordinate and support their campaign efforts as well as member engagement.
We are excited to have Julie at the forefront of our campaign efforts to win for working families, said AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. Her valuable experience and expertise will lead our efforts to support political candidates who stand for good jobs, raising wages and the freedom to join together to negotiate for a fair return on their work.
Greenes background is deeply rooted in the labor movement and efforts fighting for issues important to empowering working people. She previously worked at the AFL-CIO for seven years, most recently as deputy political director. Since 2014, Greene has served as both director of the Office of the Secretary at the Democratic National Committee, where she helped to execute large-scale events such as the Democratic National Convention, and as director of the Office of Democratic National Committee Leadership.
You never truly leave, but I am pleased be back in the House of Labor and help lead the effort to restore working families freedom to stand together and hold political leaders accountable, Greene said. At a time when working people are under attack by special interests and corporations, we are ready to stand and fight back for what is fair.
Here's an old song I like,
Labor is pulling out all stops to prevent Trump from looking good by bringing good, high paying jobs to Americans.
“Big Labor” that is.
Little Labor is actually bigger than Big Labor now. Far bigger. These are death throes.
Just another commie
While I have no problem with unions in the private sector, public unions MUST be outlawed. The taxpayer is NOT represented in any realistic capacity.
This is what happens when the left sees defeat coming; they put a woman or a minority in charge to take the fall. The union movement is dead in this country. It died from greed and Democrat political strangulation.
