Duckworth Celebrates Julie Su’s Nomination to be Secretary of Labor


[WASHINGTON, D.C.] — U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) issued the following statement after President Biden officially nominated Julie Su to be the next Secretary of Labor:

“Julie Su is the most qualified person to be our nation’s next Secretary of Labor and I’m thrilled that President Biden nominated her to serve in his Cabinet today. With her proven track-record serving as the Department of Labor’s Chief Operating Officer, I’m confident Deputy Secretary Su is prepared to lead the Department on day one, and more importantly, know that she will continue to put workers’ rights first and push to expand fair labor practices. Julie Su also brings a unique perspective that will only help her as she works to make sure all Americans are represented in the policies crafted and implemented by this Administration. I will do everything I can to ensure her nomination is successful and look forward to working with Julie Su and President Biden to help build a stronger, more resilient economy where everyone can thrive.”
