      "On behalf of the members of the CLUW, we commend President Joe Biden for his lifelong commitment to women’s rights and workers’ rights. We respect his decision not to run for re-election, and thank him for his endorsement of Vice President Kamala Harris for the next President of the United States. 

      We thank you, President Biden, and continue to offer our prayers and meditations as you finish out your historic presidency."

      Elise Bryant, CLUW President


      Statement from AFL-CIO Officers on President Biden’s Announcement

      July 21, 2024

      AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler and AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Fred Redmond issued the following statement:

      There has been no greater champion in the White House for America’s workers than President Joe Biden. He has had workers’ backs every day of his presidency, constantly pushing his administration to use every tool in its toolbox to create and protect our jobs, defend our rights in the workplace, and invest in our economic security.

      President Biden’s legacy as the most pro-labor president in history, and that of the Biden–Harris White House, is indisputable. The president led the passage of landmark legislation, which rescued our economy from the brink of another depression, brought manufacturing jobs back to America and put us on the pathway to create millions of good-paying union jobs. He ensured a pro-labor National Labor Relations Board that has defended workers’ rights and held bad bosses accountable, including corporate CEOs. He has pressed for labor standards in every federal investment and raised the wages of hundreds of thousands of federal contractors, raising the tide for fair pay for working people across the country.

      Vice President Kamala Harris has been an integral part of that success. She cast the tie-breaking votes to save the pensions of more than 1 million union members and retirees, expand the child tax credit to help millions of struggling families, and take on big pharmaceutical companies to lower the price of key prescriptions like insulin. She is a defender of civil rights and reproductive freedom and a proven partner in the administration’s pro-worker agenda.

      This is why the AFL-CIO unequivocally supported Biden–Harris for re-election earlier than any other presidential endorsement in our history. And it is why, with our deepest gratitude and respect, we honor President Biden’s choice to not run for re-election. 

      The AFL-CIO’s officers and leadership from the federation’s 60 affiliated unions, representing more than 12.5 million workers, will convene soon to discuss our next steps.

      Candidates may change, but our values don’t. Our fight to create an economy where everyone has a fighting chance and a country where working people not only survive but thrive will never stop. Our solidarity with workers as we organize and bargain for the pay, benefits, and safety we deserve will never waver. And our commitment to defeating Donald Trump and JD Vance is as strong as ever.

      AFL-CIO Leadership Unanimously Reaffirms Commitment to Re-Electing President Biden and Vice President Harris.


      July 10, 2024

      The AFL-CIO Executive Council released the following statement on President Biden’s visit to its meeting today:

      The AFL-CIO Executive Council today unanimously voted to reaffirm its commitment to re-electing President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, the leadership of the most pro-union administration in our lifetimes.

      We were honored to welcome President Biden back to the House of Labor to speak to unions that represent every sector and industry of America’s workforce. No president has been more invested in helping workers than Joe Biden, who stands with working people at every opportunity, including on the picket line. 

      We shared stories of the hopes of working people and discussed with the president the importance of unions mobilizing for Election Day. The president’s fighting spirit was on full display, and he reiterated his deep commitment to workers and our families and to taking on corporate greed. He was that “Scranton Joe” that we all know and love.

      From Day One, the Biden–Harris administration has put working people first, centering union jobs in every piece of its agenda. This administration sparked an industrial renaissance; saved workers’ pensions and hundreds of thousands of public servant jobs; expanded overtime pay; and invested in millions of good union jobs, particularly in construction. Unions have never wavered in our support of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris because they’ve never wavered in their commitment to working people, including the vigorous support of workers’ right to organize. That’s just as true today as when we endorsed the ticket more than a year ago. 

      The labor movement understands, as Joe Biden does, that solidarity is how we win. The message from today’s meeting couldn’t have been clearer: Right now, it’s time to come together around a vision of a country where everyone has a fair shot with a living wage, affordable health care, retirement security, and time to do the things we love like spending time with family and friends and pursuing our interests and passions. These are fundamental to, as the president reiterated to our meeting, building the economy from the bottom up and the middle out, not the top down. 

      The labor movement is united behind President Biden and Vice President Harris. We urge his party and the American people to join us.


      Every year, UALE sponsors 4 regional “women’s schools”. These residential programs typically last between 4 and 5 days, and include classes and workshops on a variety of labor-related topics. Women from all over the country and beyond learn the skills and knowledge needed to play leadership roles in their organizations. Visitors from labor unions and workers’ organizations in other countries frequently participate. One of the most valuable aspects of the schools is the chance to meet and network with other labor women from around your region and beyond.
