Sign petition urging confirmation of Julie Su as Labor Secretary

The following is from the AFL-CIO:

WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 17, 2023) — Julie Su’s record speaks for itself. As a young attorney representing trafficked Thai garment workers outside of Los Angeles, she won $4 million in stolen wages. Her case set a huge precedent, and that was just the beginning of a storied career.

What’s most impressive about Su is that she understands the nuances of labor law so thoroughly and translates that knowledge to meaningful policy that changes lives.

She has made a career out of representing not only workers, but the most vulnerable workers in America.

The problem is that well-heeled lobbyists and corporate special interests are spending big to block her confirmation when it comes up for a committee vote in the Senate on April 20. Simply put, Su needs our support.

Workers deserve a labor secretary who will fiercely defend working people. Will you say you stand with her?

TAKE A STAND Please sign this AFL-CIO petition in support of Julie Su’s nomination as Secretary of Labor.

What stands out about Su, beyond her expertise in labor law and policy, is that she believes so deeply in what she does. Prior to her predecessor, it had been decades before workers even had a union member at the helm of the Labor Department.

In short—Su’s confirmation will be a game changer for working families.

Please take a minute to sign the petition and show you support Julie Su.
