Washington, DC
Ms. Chavez-Thompson has been the leader in the new stance for the AFL-CIO’s advocating amnesty for undocumented workers, and she wants to eliminate sanctions for employers who hire them. She became the highest-ranking woman in the labor movement when she was elected to the new position of AFL-CIO executive vice president in 1995. Among her successes are: organizing a drive in Texas that brought in 5,000 new members; and the passage of a collective bargaining law for public employees in New Mexico.
