Daniel Marschall, Executive Director of the AFL-CIO Working for America Institute has been appointed to fill a labor position on the Montgomery Workforce Development Board. He joins existing labor members Jeff Guido from the local building trades’ CHOICE, and CSA Executive Director Kathleen McKirchy. “Everyone needs to have access to multiple career pathways and the opportunity to enhance their skills,” said Marschall. “Workforce development boards and union organizations play an important role in helping workers obtain the skill training and employment services they need.” The board oversees the county’s workforce and job development actions under the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, including ensuring that workers get access to jobs and job training, and that public workforce dollars are spent efficiently and help provide living wage jobs and careers for county residents. At the AFL-CIO Working for America Institute, Marschall assists unions, employers, skill training partnerships, and the workforce system to create, expand and retain high quality jobs. From 2008-2015, he served as the legislative and policy specialist for workforce issues for the federation. He has been involved in the nation’s employment and training system since the 1980s, when he was coordinator of the Dislocated Worker Program for the State of Ohio and executive director of the Ohio State Building and Construction Trades Training Foundation.
