Rising Stars Dominate AFL-CIO Convention Youth Events
30 OPEIU Rising Stars members from throughout the country traveled to Los Angeles to participate in the AFL-CIO's Next Up youth program at the AFL-CIO convention. Pictured with the OPEIU Rising Stars bus, OPEIU young workers joined several labor actions throughout the day and showed they truly are the future of the American labor movement! OPEIU Local 32's Business Representative KB Barnes was even recognized by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka during his keynote address to the convention as the kind of young leader that will best represent the labor movement in the coming years! Way to go KB, and thanks to all the Rising Stars members who took the time to participate!
