General President James Williams on
the Resignation of Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis
Hanover, MD – January 10, 2013 — In my 35 years as a labor leader, no one in any other presidential administration has worked harder for working families than Labor Secretary Hilda Solis. She has been a true champion for workers’ rights and safety on the job. Not only has she fearlessly fought for those in the workplace today, but for our future workforce as well by being a committed supporter of the Job Corps program. Her dedication to the men and women at work is rivaled only by her profound sense of duty to her country and fellow Americans. We will miss working with her and her team, and wish her well in her future endeavors.
