WASHINGTON — The Coalition for a Prosperous America (CPA) today released the following statements after the death of AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka:
“Rich Trumka dedicated his life and career to fighting for American workers and U.S. based industry. His unexpected death comes as a shock that saddens all of us at CPA.” — Zach Mottl, Chairman
“Rich Trumka and his team helped found CPA as a bipartisan organization back in 2008. He was a strong ally in fights against wrongheaded trade agreements, against currency manipulation and for broadly shared prosperity. Our common movement is diminished without him.” — Michael Stumo, CEO
CPA is the only national, bipartisan organization representing exclusively domestic producers and workers across many sectors of the U.S. economy.
