Congratulations Marty Walsh, U.S Secretary of Labor
Congratulations to Marty Walsh, who was confirmed by the Senate today to be U.S. Secretary of Labor. Marty has always been a staunch supporter of working families and worker rights. We know you will take those values with you to Washington, D.C., and people across the country will be better for it. Congratulations!
“Teamsters Local 25 congratulates Marty Walsh on becoming United States Secretary of Labor,” said Teamsters Local 25 President Sean O’Brien. “After four years of a labor department run by corporate attorneys and consultants and huge corporations such as Amazon showing no regard for workers or safety, Marty Walsh represents a breath of fresh air for working families and organized labor. Marty has the proven ability to facilitate partnerships among big business, unions, and environmentalists. He’s skilled at brokering relations and mediating any potential conflicts in a way that is good for workers and good for business. Marty Walsh has the strong leadership characteristic of bringing people together and unions and workers will no longer be left out of the equation in Washington.”
