Fred Redmond is New Alliance Executive Vice President
AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Fred Redmond was named Executive Vice President of the Alliance for Retired Americans on Tuesday, succeeding Liz Shuler in the position after she was elected President of the AFL-CIO in August. Mr. Redmond was previously the Chairman of the AFL-CIO Older and Retired Workers Committee.
He has also made retirement security a focus of his career as International Vice President of the United Steelworkers (USW), fighting to protect USW members’ health care and pensions in that position.
“Older workers and retirees need someone in their corner, making sure that their unique needs are a priority for the labor movement. I am confident that we will continue to have that going forward with Fred as our Vice President,” said Robert Roach, Jr., President of the Alliance.
“We were lucky to have President Shuler as the Alliance Vice President and I am honored and thrilled that Fred has now agreed to join our Executive Board to take on this important role.”
Ms. Shuler succeeded Richard Trumka as President of the AFL-CIO following his untimely death in August.
