FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Poor and Unfortunate Comparison not the Opinion or views of the Majority of KS AFL-CIO Members

Most recently, a couple of labor affiliate union members spoke out publicly to a state legislative special committee on government overreach. The Kansas AFL-CIO wants to make it abundantly clear that we do not support the reference and comparison made to the Holocaust with any current day event.

The Kansas AFL-CIO will continue to support the laws of the state and federal government. If we have concerns about such measures or laws, there is a proper way to address these issues.

We do support both President Biden and Governor Kelly in their efforts to protect the health and safety of workers. We also support Kansas’ workers as they bargain with employers to improve their living conditions and workplaces as well as their communities, state and nation.
