“John Sweeney hired me because he believed in my ability to organize. In reality, he was the ultimate organizer, the kind of person who inspired a generation of organizers, including me.” –
“The labor movement lost a giant today with the passing of Brother John Sweeney,
President Emeritus. He practiced what he preached. His humility, his faith, and his actions set a standard for leadership in the Labor Movement that will not be forgotten,”
I was honored to have been in the presence of John Sweeney during my time as United States secretary of labor, and proud to have fought alongside him to advance the rights and well-being of workers and their families.
