Statement from Bob Reiter, President of the Chicago Federation of Labor

 

CHICAGO – Chicago Federation of Labor President Bob Reiter released the following statement on the unrest in Washington, D.C.:

“The seditious acts of soon-to-be former President Trump are outrageous. President Trump has spent the last four years undermining institutions like the Department of Labor, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Centers for Disease Control. Institutions meant to protect regular people from those who would prey on the vulnerable. He is concluding his chaotic presidency by inciting unrest based on falsehoods meant to protect his fragile ego. Together, we won the battle for the soul of our nation. But we must remain steadfast as the transition of power continues and we welcome the Biden Administration and this new Congress.”
