Just beyond the halfway-mark in President Donald Trump's first 100 days in office, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka gave a major address at a National Press Club Luncheon on April 4, 2017, assessing opportunities around trade and infrastructure that could create jobs, as well as possible threats to workers' rights. President Trumka spoke about the labor movement's strategy to create a unifying agenda for working families, and the importance it places on ensuring that all workers - union and non-union - have the right to bargain collectively for better wages and working conditions.
