PASS Congratulates New AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler

Mike Perrone, National President of the Professional Aviation Safety Specialists, AFL-CIO (PASS) offered his congratulations to Liz Shuler and Fred Redmond on their election to president and secretary-treasurer respectively of the AFL-CIO.

“I know it has been an emotional time for the AFL-CIO over the last few weeks, but the federation is strong and Rich Trumka built a talented leadership team that is able to face any challenge,” said Perrone. “PASS is immensely proud to be part of this great organization and to see that Rich’s legacy is in such strong and capable hands."

The AFL-CIO Executive Council met earlier today to fill the position of the federation’s president following the untimely death of Richard Trumka earlier this month. Shuler previously served as secretary-treasurer and Redmond as international vice president for human affairs.

“On behalf of the more than 11,000 public servants PASS represents at the Federal Aviation Administration and the Department of Defense, we send our best wishes to President Shuler, Secretary-Treasurer Redmond and Executive Vice President Tefere Gebre. We stand ready to fight with you on behalf of working people everywhere," said Perrone.
