The following statement may be attributed to Kyle Bragg, President 32BJ SEIU.
“Eugene Scalia has built his career advocating on behalf of banks and corporations like the Koch brothers, Walmart and Goldman Sachs and has had a significant role in rigging the system against working people whether white, Black or brown. To now put him in charge of the very agency tasked with protecting workers’ rights and safety is an appalling joke made at the expense of working people everywhere. In every conceivable way, Scalia has fought to undermine the right of people to join unions and has rolled back protections for consumers and whistleblowers. The Senate must only confirm a Labor Secretary who will carry out the Department of Labor’s mission to protect workers and families and not, yet another creature emerging from the swamp.”
With over 175,000 members in 11 states, 32BJ SEIU is the largest property services union in the country.
