WASHINGTON, DC – Pennsylvania U.S. Senator John Fetterman today met with the Secretary of Labor nominee Julie Su to discuss her nomination to the position, protecting workers on the job, and ensuring labor rights in Pennsylvania and across the country.
“We need a Secretary of Labor who will fight for workers. It was an honor to meet with Acting Labor Secretary Su. I know she is the labor ally we need in this position. I will be voting YES on her confirmation, and I urge all my colleagues to do the same,” said Senator Fetterman.
Su has a career history of championing workers’ rights and fighting for working people. She served as Secretary of California’s state Department of Labor from 2011 to 2018 and was confirmed as Deputy Secretary of Labor in 2021.
Last week, the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions committee favorably reported Su’s nomination to the full Senate. If confirmed, Su would be the first Asian American Cabinet secretary to serve in President Biden’s administration.
