Local 112 Educator Michael Madden, a 29-year active Machinist from District 19, has been selected by the Minnesota AFL-CIO to join its Racial and Economic Justice Committee.
“I seek to bring unity, organization and struggle for the purpose of dismantling all that keeps us divided, so that all citizens upon the Earth may be in the driver’s seat and at the table deciding how we are to proceed in putting people before profits,” said Madden.
“Brother Michael has always championed racial equality on the job and in his local, and now has the opportunity to do so on a much broader scale,” said Richard Johnsen, Chief of Staff to the International President. “I congratulate Michael for this esteemed honor. I couldn’t think of anyone more deserving to continue leading this fight.”
The Minnesota AFL-CIO is the united labor movement of more than 300,000 union members dedicated to improving the lives of all working families and is an expression of the hopes and aspirations of the working people throughout the state.
