AFL-CIO's First Woman President Supports Vaccines but Workers Should Have a Say

The AFL-CIO, the nation’s largest labor union, recently named its first-ever woman president in Liz Shuler. She joined Cheddar’s Closing Bell to talk about the groundbreaking election and her thoughts on the future of the labor movement. As a COVID vaccine mandate in the workplace remains a focal point of discussion, Shuler said the union supports vaccinating employees but that every worker should still have a say in how that's implemented. "Every workplace is different," she said. "That's the beauty of what we bring to the table is the ability to sit in a bargaining environment with our employers to bring a worker voice to that discussion."
