TCU International President Bob Scardelletti and TCU Assistant National Legislative Director Tony Padilla attended the official swearing-in ceremony of Hilda Solis as Secretary of Labor. The swearing-in begins a new era at the Department of Labor where the needs and rights of working men and women have a voice over corporate interests.
A longtime supporter of the labor movement, Solis has shown strong support for the Employee Free Choice Act now introduced in congress. Her leadership at the Department of Labor should bring about changes that the labor movement will look forward to and support.
“The selection of Secretary Solis will have a positive ripple effect in the entire labor movement not just for TCU,” said Bob Scardelletti, “we are proud to be part of this celebration.”
