Walker will be Associate Deputy Secretary at DOL
Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis has announced the appointment of Naomi Walker to be the Associate Deputy Secretary at the Department of Labor. Naomi will be responsible for policy development and outreach to the labor movement, and knowing her work at the AFL-CIO for the past 12 years, we are certain that working families across the country will benefit from her passion and commitment to social and economic justice.
Naomi has served as the Director of the AFL-CIO Office of State Government Affairs, and has worked closely with many state federations and labor legislators on developing and advancing a pro-working families agenda in state legislatures across the country. While Naomi’s expertise and experience will be missed, the work she has been doing is well underway and will continue.
Please join us in congratulating Naomi, as well as complimenting President Obama and Secretary Solis for this wise choice for America’s workers.
