It's time we have a labor-minded person like Leo W. Gerard in charge of labor. In the event current Labor Sec. Hilda Solis doesn't continue into President Obama's second term, Gerard needs to be nominated. Sign the petition and let's make it known.
No labor leader has stood his ground or fought as hard as International President Leo W. Gerard to preserve and create union-wage jobs that support middle-class families and their communities.
What better to continue moving forward than nominating Gerard to Secretary of Labor.
As USW President, Gerard was instrumental in the formation of the Industrial Union Council of the AFL-CIO. He is a member of the AFL-CIO Executive Committee as well as serving on its Executive Council. He is also a board member of the AFL-CIO Transportation Trades Department and chairs the AFL-CIO Public Policy Committee.
Gerard also serves on the U.S. National Commission on Energy Policy.
