Labor Movement Celebrates the Election of New Leadership Team
Earlier this week, the AFL-CIO Executive Council met to elect a new president and a new secretary-treasurer for our federation. AFL-CIO Acting President and Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler (IBEW) was elected president. Fred Redmond (USW) was elected AFL-CIO secretary-treasurer. Tefere Gebre (UFCW) continues on as AFL-CIO executive vice president. Congratulations and well wishes came in from across the labor movement and beyond for this historic new leadership team. Click here to view a roundup of statements on the election.
Liz Shuler Elected As AFL-CIO’s First Woman President; Fred Redmond Elected First Black Secretary-Treasurer
The AFL-CIO, the largest federation of labor unions in the country, announced Friday it has elected Liz Shuler as the first woman to serve as its president. Shuler succeeds Richard Trumka, who served as president of the federation from 2009 until he died unexpectedly earlier this month at age 72.
In a statement, Shuler said she was “humbled, honored and ready to guide” forward the AFL-CIO, which is composed of 56 unions and 12.5 million members.
“I believe in my bones the labor movement is the single greatest organized force for progress,” Shuler said. “This is a moment for us to lead societal transformations — to leverage our power to bring women and people of color from the margins to the center — at work, in our unions and in our economy, and to be the center of gravity for incubating new ideas that will unleash unprecedented union growth.”
Shuler was previously the AFL-CIO’s secretary-treasurer, the federation’s second-in-command. Fred Redmond, the former international vice president for United Steelworkers, was elected as the AFL-CIO’s first Black secretary-treasurer, the federation also announced Friday.
Shuler, who grew up in a union household, said she was determined to continue Trumka's push to expand the power of organized labor, reduce the income gap between rich and poor while increasing union membership, which has slid for decades in the country.
"This is a moment for us to lead societal transformations - to leverage our power to bring women and people of color from the margins to the center - at work, in our unions and in our economy," she said in a statement.
Redmond’s path to the federation’s second-highest office began in 1973, when he went to work at Reynolds Metals Co. in Chicago and became a member of the United Steelworkers (USW). He was active in his local union almost immediately, serving as shop steward and eventually vice president. He served three terms as local president.
As USW international vice president for human affairs, a position to which he was first elected to in 2006, Redmond oversaw the union’s Civil and Human Rights Department and worked with USW allies across the country in responding to attacks on voting rights and in combating economic inequality.
"This Could Be the Most Unifying Moment in Labor History"
A Message from President Liz Shuler
AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler delivered the following remarks after her election:
I recognize both the honor and the responsibility I now have as president. We never thought we’d be here, through a pandemic, so many tragedies...and the sudden loss of Rich.
We didn’t want this milestone to happen this way. But through your resilience and dedication to our’ve just elected the most diverse leadership team in our history. (Redmond), Tefere (Gebre), me...and all of you. This is just the very beginning of a longer, ongoing discussion about change and the future. 
We’re going to build a modern labor movement to meet this extraordinary moment. People are hurting and scared...there aren’t enough good, sustainable jobs...the middle class has been hollowed out...COVID-19 has amplified long-standing structural inequity... our systems are broken...the climate crisis is is changing how work is done...but we want working people to know they can find hope with us.[ Read President Shuler's entire speech here
Fred Redmond Elected Secretary-Treasurer
Following Liz Shuler’s election as president, United Steelworkers (USW) International Vice President Fred Redmond was elected as the AFL-CIO’s new secretary-treasurer.
“I could not be more excited to get to work with President Shuler so we can build on the labor movement’s legacy of change, writing a new chapter that brings the promise of union membership to workers across this country,” Redmond said after his election. “This is the right team at the right time to help bring about the economic and social justice America is hungry for.”
Redmond has been a USW member since 1973, when he went to work at Reynolds Metals Co. in Chicago. He became active in his local union almost immediately, serving as shop steward and eventually vice president. He served three terms as local president.
For decades, Redmond served the USW in various staff and leadership roles, assisting local unions, developing and conducting training programs, and bargaining contracts.
As international vice president for human affairs, Redmond oversaw the Civil and Human Rights Department, as well as the union’s shipbuilding, health care and public sector bargaining, and worked with USW allies across the country in responding to attacks on voting rights and in combating economic inequality. Redmond has a long history of leadership on various boards, including the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists and the A. Philip Randolph Institute. In 2021, Redmond was elected president of the Trade Union Confederation of the Americas, a prestigious international post.
President Liz Shuler: Voting Rights and Labor Rights Are One
AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler delivered the following remarks at a "Fighting for Our Vote" rally:

Thank you to the NAACP and ACLU. I’m honored to stand with voting rights champions here and all across our country...including...AFSCME President Lee Saunders…here with us…AFT President Randi Weingarten who is kicking it off in Cleveland...and NEA President Becky Pringle who is firing up Detroit. And thanks to Dyana Forester for her leadership of the Metro Washington Council.

On behalf of the AFL-CIO’s 12.5 million members...who fight for the rights of all working people. We are standing up...for voting rights...against racial discrimination and voter suppression. That means protecting the right to vote...expanding the right to vote…and making it easier to exercise the right to vote.

We need guaranteed early voting. We need mail-in voting and ballot drop every every state. We need safety measures and enforcement for voters and poll workers. And to protect our voting rights...we need to pass laws including the For the People Act...and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act. 

I can still hear John Lewis telling that story about weathering a storm in his tin-roof house in Troy, Alabama. If you ever heard the Congressman speak you know it. He was with family...and through this felt like the house would uproot and blow away. But wherever the house lifted from its corner, another corner...everyone in the house would stand together...running from side to side to hold it down. And John Lewis said, the wind may blow. The thunder may roll. The lightning may flash. But never...ever...leave the house. He said, we live in the same house. Black, white, all ages, faiths, genders. We are one people, one family, one house. [READ SPEECH]

We Mourn Richard Trumka,
and Will Fight In His Memory
The world lost a tireless fighter for working people on Aug. 5, when AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka passed away. At the RWDSU, we often saw first-hand the dedication of a man who was willing to go toe to toe with anybody if it meant defending the rights of working people and creating a fairer and more equitable society where all of us have our voices heard, not just the wealthiest and most powerful. 

After being elected president of the AFL-CIO in 2011, Rich’s first trip to New York was to stand with RWDSU members at the Kingsbridge Armory in the Bronx to demand living wages, especially at projects funded with taxpayer money. In Williamson, New York, he was there on the front lines to stand side-by-side with hundreds of striking RWDSU members at the Mott’s applesauce plant. Richard Trumka’s vocal support helped the workers win their strike against a corporate employer that was trying to slash wages and benefits despite enjoying record profits.

Richard Trumka joined the RWDSU in taking on Amazon in Bessemer, Alabama, standing with the courageous workers there who are trying to organize a union in the face of Amazon’s unlimited resources and willingness to break labor law to destroy their campaign. He was always there to answer the bell, no matter how big or small the fight when it came to workers’ rights. He was a visionary and an inspirational leader. [READ ARTICLE]
Labor Movement’s Priority Legislation Moves Forward on Capitol Hill
The House of Representatives on Tuesday voted to proceed with President Biden’s $3.5 trillion budget resolution, along with the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. The Build Back Better agenda contains many of the labor movement’s priorities, including growing Medicare, expanding sick leave and child care, increasing investments in education and combating climate change. The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act will expand voting rights across the country. President Shuler praised the House’s actions as an important step forward:
“By passing the $3.5 trillion budget resolution and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, the House has taken a critical step forward for working families. Passage of this resolution puts America one step closer to providing major new funding for good jobs and our care infrastructure—including the first ever federal paid family and medical leave benefit, affordable health care, education and enhanced enforcement of our labor laws. President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda already has made an impact on the lives of so many across this country and today represents yet another victory for America’s working families. With discriminatory voting laws also proliferating across the country, passage of the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act could not come at a more critical time. Thanks to the tireless efforts of House leadership, our country is on its way to building back better and stronger and protecting our democracy; and we look forward to the final passage of these bills and the bipartisan infrastructure legislation as soon as possible.”
White House Releases State Fact Sheets Highlighting the Impact of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act Nationwide
The White House released updated state fact sheets that highlight the nationwide impact of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, the largest long-term investment in our infrastructure and competitiveness in nearly a century.

The fact sheets highlight how the historic legislation will deliver for states and territories across the country to repair roads and bridges, improve transportation options, build a network of EV chargers to accelerate the adoption of EVs, help connect every American to reliable high-speed internet, eliminate the nation’s lead service lines and pipes for clean drinking water, protect against extreme weather events and cyberattacks and improve our nation’s airports.

In the coming days and weeks, we expect to receive additional data on the impact of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act state by state.

Individual fact sheets are linked below.
Labor Day Canceled, but Labor Council Still Needs Us!
Dear Sisters, Brothers and Friends of working families,

Every year at this time starting back around 1985, the Cincinnati AFL-CIO Labor Council has held its annual Labor Day Picnic/Coney Island invitation for our union affiliates, their members and working families, and to our Friends of Labor. We would go about preparing for one of the largest, most recognized Labor-sponsored Labor Day picnics in the country. 

Unfortunately, once again this year, out of an abundance of caution and to maintain Labor’s Leadership position placing health and safety above all else, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our Annual Labor Day Celebration at Coney Island for a second year. This decision is not an easy one. Quite frankly, our Labor Day Picnic is the biggest annual fundraising event for the Cincinnati AFL-CIO Labor Council.  

And while we know that it serves the health and best interests of our local affiliates, union families and friends of Labor, we are once more preparing for an important election with opportunities to elect pro-Union, pro-working family candidates to our courts, and to our municipal, county, state, and federal offices. In short, the work we do is incredibly important.

So, what can we do now? The funds that are generated each year from our historic annual Labor Day Picnic/Coney Island help run our daily operations and Labor programs, maintain our office and communication tools, fairly compensate our dedicated staff, and progressively move forward our Labor movement/agenda in the greater Cincinnati area.  

As our labor affiliates/partners and Friends of Labor, we respectfully request that your organization once again consider making a Labor Day donation to the Cincinnati AFL-CIO Labor Council to make certain that we are able to continue doing the good work that we do for you, and all the hard-working women and men of Greater Cincinnati.

We thank you for your leadership, your activism/dedication to the Labor movement, and your consideration of the above request. We will continue to stand with you, fight for your union and members rights, and social/racial/economic justice for all working families, in Cincinnati and throughout our great nation! Please help us continue to serve you and this community where we all live, love, learn, work, play and pray.

In unity and solidarity,

William E. Froehle,
President, Cincinnati AFL-CIO Labor Council
UFCW Local 75's Bill Benner Receives Award From YDA In Cincinnati
Congratulations to UFCW Local 75's Bill Benner who received the Young Democrats of America's (YDA) "Isaac Robertson Young Labor Activist" award this year at the YDA Convention held in Cincinnati.
During the convention, the YDA adopted new platforms, many of which focus on restoring our middle class and allowing workers to form a union without fear and intimidation.
Their labor platform states, "we believe in expanding collective bargaining throughout our modern, service-based economy to maintain economic flexibility and to build economic opportunity, while vigorously defending a century's worth of hard-fought progress and protections won by the American worker united in purpose and organized in action."
This year’s convention was focused on labor and unions as most convention services were provided by union business including the hotel and printed materials (signs, flyers, banners, etc.) Labor was represented by multiple unions such as: IBEW, OPIEU, UFCW, IAFF, and SEIU and three state federations: Ohio AFL-CIO, Georgia AFL-CIO, and the Minnesota AFL-CIO.
We join the YDA and thank Bill for his service and commitment to the tens of thousands of UFCW 75 members he works with as well as for his time, commitment and energy to help make Ohio a better place to live, work and play for every working person.
Labor Turns Out Across Ohio to Demand Fair Legislative Maps
This week, hundreds of union members, community activists and concerned Ohioans are attending the Ohio Redistricting Commission hearings held across the state to end the illegal practice of gerrymandering.
Ohioans have lived under unconstitutional maps for the past 10 years, which has led to extremism, polarization and a lack of good policy coming out of Columbus.
"Ohio’s working people have suffered the results of severe gerrymandering. The result has meant bread-and-butter issues that most Ohioans care about have been left on the backburner while extremism is on the rise. Ohio’s working families deserve fair electoral maps," said Ohio AFL-CIO President Tim Burga, who has encouaged union members to testify at the public hearings.
As reported in The Plain Dealer from the Cleveland hearing, "Ohio's oddly drawn legislative districts have been called many things over the last decade and Peter Petto of Bay Village adds this to the list: 'These maps have been a gruesome tattoo on our body politic over the last ten years,' said Petto, a retired high school teacher.
One criticism hitting commission members was the time of the meetings, which some speakers said kept those who work during the day and can’t afford to take a day off from being able to speak at their local meetings.
“The hope is that you all understand that their interests need to be represented even though they’re not here, even though they may not have voted for you, even though they may not have voted,” said Reginald Williams, an attorney and Shaker Heights resident.
Pictured is Bill Padisak, President of the Mahoning-Trumbull Central Labor Council who spoke to the negative consequences gerrymandering has had on working people and Republicans have “manipulated” the maps in the past for the political party’s advantage.
“People want fair maps and fair representation,” Padisak said. “No matter which political party, when you’re gerrymandering, it’s wrong."

The Union Difference
Unions give each of our members an equal opportunity to advance in the workplace. Working people who come together in a union can bargain for higher wages, better benefits and safer working conditions. Union members also are more likely to have employer-provided health insurance, access to paid sick days, and retirement benefits and guaranteed pensions through private employers.

Bob Herzog here, anchor of “Good Morning Cincinnati” on Local 12 WKRC-TV and the honorary chair of the Rubber Duck Regatta.

After such a difficult year, I hope you’ll join me in support of this fun event for a serious purpose that can do so much to help our community move forward.

For every duck you purchase, Freestore Foodbank can provide meals for 15 boys and girls facing hunger. So please, buy as many ducks as you can today!

The Rubber Duck Regatta—founded by our big-hearted friend, Bob Edwards—extends a lifeline of hope each year to children and families experiencing hunger.As we continue to recover from the pandemic, the need in our community has increased. In fact, there are now more than 90,000 children in the tristate area who are at risk of hunger every day. That’s why your duck purchase is so important.
If you’re able, I hope you’ll join me to celebrate Freestore’s 50th anniversary and buy the Freestore50 Quack Pack—that's just $50 to get 2 ducks FREE and help provide meals for 150 boys and girls!

I want to personally thank you, Brian, for your support and hope we can count on your duck purchase for hungry kids in our community.

Let’s get quacking!

PS: Our duck drop this year will be virtual while structural work is completed on the Purple People Bridge. I can’t wait until we can pour ducks into the Ohio River once again, but until then we need to keep our tradition going strong for tristate kids! Buy your ducks today!
A Rapidly Changing World
Dear friends,

Our discussion around United Way of Greater Cincinnati’s work over the past year continues today with a look at a fourth strategy we implemented: innovating programs and systems to respond to a rapidly changing world. 

Here is a look at our impact numbers in this area: 
Here are some examples of our work:


  • United Way worked to mitigate the isolating impact of COVID-19 as people had to social distance and everyday activities shifted online. This required quick innovations to meet immediate needs because school children, senior citizens and others were isolated and disconnected. Our work included:

  • Nearly 900 volunteers provided Notes of Encouragement to nearly 20,000 older adults across the Greater Cincinnati region.

I hope you feel gratified reading about the positive change we create together. Soon we will talk about our plan for the future.

Back-to-School Anxiety?
Help kids manage stress at the start of the school year.
Prepare for a smoother transition 

The idea of going back to school often gives students butterflies in their stomachs. With the ongoing pandemic, leaving home can be even more difficult. Below are some ways to help your child (and yourself) manage the transition.
Meet the teachers & other parents

You can better reassure your kids if you already know their teachers and the other parents. If you can, schedule some time to meet with them.
Take care of yourself & establish a routine
Getting enough rest and managing your own stress means that you can take better care of your child's needs. Try to establish a predictable routine so your children know what to expect.
Talk with your kids
  • Ask them how school is going and focus on the positive.
  • Discuss boundaries and expectations, especially when it comes to COVID safety.
  • Be calm and reassuring.
When it comes to urgent care for kids, telehealth can take anxiety out of a visit. See a doctor on LiveHealth Online anytime!
