Solidarity statement from the TUC to the AFL-CIO (US elections)

Frances O’Grady, TUC General Secretary

We stand in solidarity with our sisters and brothers at the AFL-CIO, who have worked tirelessly during the USA’s 2020 elections to support the democratic rights of working people across the country, and to ensure that every vote is counted.

We are proud of the role that unions play in countering the politics of hate, division and  authoritarianism, and pay tribute to AFL-CIO’s campaign to protect every vote in the highest voter turnout in more than a century.

The AFL-CIO has been at the forefront of the struggle for racial and economic justice. We know that whatever the outcome of this election, the labour movement across the USA and internationally will keep standing up for decency, dignity and equality for all working people, men and women, whatever our race, religion or background.

The collective power of working people can move mountains.
Together, strong and united, we will win.

General Secretary
