AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka makes one last trip to the House of Labor, a place and an idea that he loved so much. From his days as a staff attorney for the United Mine Workers of America until the last day of his life, Trumka devoted his career and life’s passion to working people as a relentless champion of labor rights, workplace safety, worker-centered trade, democracy, and so much more. He was also a devoted father, grandfather, husband, brother, coach, colleague, and friend.
