In advance of RNC in Cleveland this summer, women’s vote will matter
National AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler will join Ohio AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Petee Talley and North Shore (Cleveland) AFL-CIO Executive Secretary Harriet Applegate for a panel discussion entitled “What Working Women Want the Republican Presidential Nominee to Know” in advance of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this summer.
Together these three leaders represent national, state and local female leadership of the labor movement, Shuler is presently the #2 leader of the overall labor movement nationally.
With the potential historic nature of the coming general election and the possibility of the first female, major party presidential nominee on the ballot, the importance of women’s issues, and the women’s vote, cannot be understated. Women comprise approximately 52 percent of electorate nationally.
Topics for discussion will include equal pay, paid leave, fair scheduling and a number of other issues of great importance to working women. The results of the AFL-CIO’s recent survey of 25,000 working women will also be discussed.
