Welcome to Uniontown: Episode 04 – Richard Trumka


We welcome America’s highest-ranking union leader Richard Trumka, AFL-CIO President, to Uniontown. He looks back on his days as a mineworker, explains why labor is not at odds with environmental rights, and reflects on how his first childhood lesson from his father about racism leads to his conclusion that America can’t just be built back, but must be built back better.
