Metro Washington Council president Jackie Jeter has been appointed to the AFL-CIO’s Advisory Committee by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. “Jackie is a proven leader whose years of dedicated service have improved the lives of thousands of working people in the DC Metro area,” said AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. “Jackie will be a valuable addition to the AFL-CIO’s Advisory Committee, which plays a vital role in bringing together diverse voices from across the country, as we fight to uplift all working families,” said Trumka. “I am honored to serve and it is my hope that I will be able to become a positive addition to the committee that will move labor forward in a progressive way,” said Jeter. The Committee is responsible for bringing the voice and perspective of state federations, area and central labor councils to bear on the discussions about program, strategy and tactics of the AFL-CIO. It also functions as a peer-to-peer exchange to share experiences, challenges and best practices with each other and the other state federations and labor councils in their regions.
