The United Steelworkers (USW) today announced that USW Associate Legislative Director Anna Fendley has been selected as Vice President for the North American region of the global labor union IndustriALL.

Fendley has worked in various positions at the USW for a decade, including the past six years in the USW’s Washington, D.C., office. She also chairs the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) youth committee, of which she’s been a member since 2014.

“Anna is doing exceptional work in our legislative office, tackling a wide range of issues from health and safety to health care to climate and energy,” said USW International President Leo W. Gerard. “We know she is more than ready to take on this new role.”

Fendley will take over for retiring USW Vice President Carol Landry on the IndustriALL executive board, effectively immediately.

IndustriALL is a global federation of labor unions founded in June 2012. It has more than 600 affiliates from 140 countries, all fighting for better working conditions and workers’ rights.

The first woman to hold the position, Landry was elected as IndustriALL North American Vice President at the 2016 IndustriALL World Congress meeting in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

“I’m so proud to see the next generation taking on these fights,” said Landry. “With activists like Anna leading the charge, the global labor movement is in good hands.”

The USW represents 850,000 workers in North America employed in many industries that include metals, rubber, chemicals, paper, oil refining and the service and public sectors.
