It also will examine the role of unions as collaborating partners with business, policy makers and local communities to create opportunities that prepare workers for good jobs, raise wages and spur economic development and community revitalization.

Scheduled speakers include AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka; Snap-On Tools Chairman and CEO Nicholas Pinchuk; AFT President Randi Weingarten; UTC Propulsion & Aerospace Systems Vice President Terry Nolan; North America’s Building Trades Unions President Sean McGarvey; AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Elizabeth Shuler; Machinists (IAM) President R. Thomas Buffenbarger; and AT&T Senior Vice President, Public Affairs and Chief Sustainability Officer Charlene F. Lake.
