AFSCME President Lee Saunders spoke with the Democratic National Committee’s Labor Council late last month, reminding them that “social distancing does not preclude solidarity.”

Saunders reminded the committee that organized labor has long been an important supporter of the Democratic party, and asked presidential nominee Joe Biden and vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris to “understand who the heroes of this pandemic are. They know who has answered the call. It’s essential workers of all kinds – public and private sector alike. It’s members of all our unions – stopping at nothing to serve our communities in a moment of crisis, even under the most difficult, dangerous conditions.”
