Statement of UAW President Ray Curry on Death of AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka

Detroit -- To his dying day, Richard Trumka understood working men and women in this country are indispensable and are the engine that drives our economy and our communities. It is with great sadness, having met with him as recently as Monday, to hear the news of this tragic loss of a great champion of the labor movement and social justice.

Anyone who knew him, knew he was a tireless fighter of workers’ rights and human rights.

The arc of history will remember this great man as a beacon of light during this trying time for working men and women.

Our hearts go out to his family and the entire AFL-CIO on this tragic loss.
