The AFL-CIO has a new president, the first woman – Liz Shuler, who got the job after the death of Richard Trumka. But elections are scheduled for next year, and already there are competing visions. So, it’s a great time to discuss the future of the US labor movement. This week on the Heartland Labor Forum, we’ll talk to two labor visionaries: Damon Silvers, director of policy and special counsel for the AFL-CIO and Bill Fletcher, Jr., former Education Director of the AFL-CIO and of Trans-Africa about what is to be done to rebuild the labor movement. Tune in Thursday at 6pm, rebroadcast Friday at 5am.
