Union Leaders Celebrate New DC Bank of Labor Office

On August 11, union officials, including AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, Boilermakers International President Newton B. Jones, and AFM Legislative-Political and Diversity Director Alfonso Pollard, celebrated the opening of the Bank of Labor office in Washington, DC. Jones, who is also the bank’s chairman and CEO, dedicated the new office to former Boilermakers International President Joe Franklin, who served the union from 1908 to 1944, and led the effort to form the Brotherhood State Bank, the forerunner to the Bank of Labor. Several AFM musicians performed at the opening ceremony.
