AFL-CIO President Sweeney to Speak in LR

John Sweeney, President of the AFL-CIO, will speak at noon on Friday, September 7th, in Sturgis Hall at the Clinton School of Public Service, Little Rock. His topic will be, "America Isn't Working the Way It Should for Working People – and What to Do About It."

Sweeney is the four-term president of the AFL-CIO, the largest union organization in the United States, representing 54 affiliated unions and 10 million members, as well as more than 1.5 million members in Working America, its new community affiliate. Unlike some other union organizations, the AFL-CIO has yet to endorse a presidential candidate. Sweeney is a graduate of Iona College and holds honorary degrees from Oberlin College, the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, the University of Baltimore, Catholic University Law School and the University of Toledo’s College of Law.

There is no admission charge, and you are invited to bring a brown bag lunch. Water and soft drinks will be provided. For reserved seating call 501.683.5239 or email
