“Today we are heartbroken to hear of the tragic loss of AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. President Trumka was a true fighter and advocate for workers and their families his entire life. He was a former coal miner and previously served as president of the United Mine Workers of America.

We send our prayers and condolences to his family and friends.”
