Reject labor secretary nominee Eugene Scalia

Union-busting lawyer brings decades of anti-worker experience as he seeks to become labor secretary


The following is from the AFL-CIO:

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Sept. 18, 2019) — For your consideration, the AFL-CIO humbly presents Eugene Scalia. Go to and learn all you need to know about President Trump’s union-busting nominee for secretary of labor.

After spending a lifetime attacking the rights and dignity of working people, Scalia is ready for another chance to ruthlessly advance corporate interests. His specialties include eroding labor rights, unraveling consumer protections, endangering Americans’ retirement security, and blaming workers for their own deaths.

TAKE A STAND — Eugene Scalia has spent his entire career making life more difficult and dangerous for working people. The secretary of labor needs to be a true advocate for workers. Please sign this petition urging Congress to REJECT Scalia’s nomination.

Some of Scalia’s career highlights include:

►  Eliminating the Department of Labor’s fiduciary rule, freeing investors to pocket money at the expense of working people’s retirement accounts.

►  Suing the government repeatedly on behalf of big banks to unravel Dodd–Frank consumer protection rules.

►  Defending UPS against widespread discrimination claims, killing a major class action lawsuit filed under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

►  Representing casino mogul Steve Wynn when he was accused of stealing tips from his Las Vegas employees.

►  Shaming and berating a sexual harassment survivor to tears.
