President Shuler has been a visionary leader for years as Secretary-Treasuer of the AFL-CIO and we know she will continue to lead this movement with sharp vision and pro-worker values. As the first woman union leader elected to serve in this role, Liz is not only making history but also paving the way for union members and leaders across the nation.
