WASHINGTON, D.C.—Marc Perrone, International President of the 1.3 million member United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW), today released the following statement in response to the confirmation of Loretta Lynch as Attorney General of the United States.
“We congratulate Loretta Lynch on being confirmed as Attorney General. And we decry the Senate leadership for delaying her confirmation vote in unprecedented fashion over the President’s legal and necessary executive actions on immigration.
Now more than ever, workers need a champion leading the Department of Justice. With voting rights under assault and corporations seeking to grab levels of power that hurt everyday Americans, Ms. Lynch has a tough job ahead of her. But her unique qualifications, experience, and character give us the utmost confidence that she will be a strong advocate for hard-working men and women.”
