Well, Liz oversees 6 departments and is leading the AFL-CIO's young worker outreach initiative, and labors' success in battleground states depends on our ability to communicate to the youth. Liz holds the distinction of being the youngest officer ever to lead the national union movement alongside charasmatic union leader President Rich Trumka. Liz is the first ever woman to be elected Secretary-Treasurer as the 2nd highest ranking officer in the 12.2 million member AFL-CIO. Liz will be spending Labor Day with Vice President Joe Biden, and she has the respect of union leaders from around the world. It is really awesome that she will be on UCOMM Radio's Labor Day show.
