Working People Unite: #ImWithChuck

In response to President-Elect Trump’s Twitter attack on USW 1999 President Chuck Jones, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said:

Chuck Jones is a man of passion, conviction and integrity who would do anything for his union brothers and sisters.  President Gerard is exactly right – Chuck is a hero.  An attack on him is an attack on all working people.

Chuck is right to call out the president-elect for inflating the number of jobs that will be saved at Carrier. He understands better than anyone that these are more than numbers—they are people with families to support and bills to pay.

Instead of attacking those who have been working hard to save jobs, the president-elect needs to engage with local union leaders at Carrier and at his hotel in Las Vegas. Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas is breaking the law by not bargaining with its newly unionized employees.  Mr. Trump will soon occupy the White House. His words and actions need to befit that office.
