AFL-CIO Calls for Resignation of Governor Ralph Northam

  • 5 February 2019

After a unanimous vote by the AFL-CIO Executive Council to call for Gov. Ralph Northam’s resignation, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka issued the following statement:

Gov. Northam’s racist actions of the past—and his behavior of the past few days—cut against everything we stand for. He has shown himself not to be the leader Virginia and America need, and he must resign immediately.

This protracted exercise has been a painful, embarrassing trial for Virginians and the country as a whole. Gov. Northam’s refusal to step aside is only further deepening the wounds he has inflicted.

We call on Gov. Northam to change course and accept the only path that will allow us to heal and move forward together.
