The entire CWA family mourns the passing of AFL-CIO President Rich Trumka.

“Rich Trumka dedicated his life to the labor movement,” said CWA President Chris Shelton. “Rich cared deeply about improving the lives of all working people, and he never forgot what it was like to work in the mines of western Pennsylvania. Under his leadership, the AFL-CIO fought every day for a more inclusive, just America.. I was proud to call him my brother.”

We send our deepest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.
