VP Redmond picked to lead AFL-CIO Task Force on Racial Justice

USW International Vice President Fred Redmond has been picked to lead the new AFL-CIO Task Force on Racial Justice. President Richard Trumka announced the creation of the task force and charged it with implementing a series of recommendations adopted by the AFL-CIO General Board focused on taking concrete action to address America’s long history of racism and police violence against Black people.

“The labor movement is committed to being the tip of the spear in the fight to bring long overdue racial justice to our country,” Trumka said. “These dedicated leaders will take on one of the most complex challenges our movement has ever faced. I am confident each of them have the experience, dedication and tenacity to lead this important initiative.”
