  • Supreme Court Nominee Raises Serious Concerns for Working Families
    Updated On: Mar 16, 2017

    AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka made the following statement on Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court:

    The nomination of a Supreme Court justice is of paramount importance to working families. The Court’s decisions have a profound impact on the wages and working conditions of working people. We are deeply troubled that President Trump, who ran his campaign on being a friend to working people, has chosen his nominee from among a group vetted and approved by organizations like the Heritage Foundation and Federalist Society. Unfortunately, Judge Gorsuch does not seem to appreciate the issues and challenges facing working families and the importance of upholding and enforcing our rights. His rulings to date raise very serious concerns about where he stands on issues like worker health and safety, equal opportunity in the workplace and the ability of agencies to adopt rules to protect workers’ rights. We will be digging deeper into Judge Gorsuch’s record in the days ahead to see if he meets the high standards that working families deserve.
