Dycus Wins Second Term as Tennessee AFL-CIO Labor Council President

Billy Dycus has been re-elected to a second, four-year term as president of the Tennessee AFL-CIO Labor Council.

“Once again, I am humbled that our affiliates have put their trust in me to represent thousands of hard-working Tennesseans throughout the state,” Dycus said. “It has been an honor and a privilege leading this organization for the past four years, and I look forward to what we’ll accomplish together for working families in the future.”

Dycus was first elected to serve as president at the Council’s 29th Biennial Convention in October of 2015. Previously, he was the president of United Steelworkers Local 1155L in Morrison, Tennessee.
Current Tennessee AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer A.J. Starling was also re-elected to serve another term.
“I have enjoyed working alongside President Dycus for the past four years and witnessing his leadership in action,” Starling said. “He is a valuable asset to our membership, and I am confident in his ability to guide this organization successfully into a new era for the labor movement.”
In addition to Dycus and Starling, the following Executive Board members and affiliates were elected to serve as vice presidents of the Tennessee AFL-CIO: Paul Shaffer (Executive Vice President), Kevin Huddleston (1st Vice President), Mike Lee (2nd Vice President), Bill Brock (3rd Vice President), and Lisa Hartman (4th Vice President).
All of the Tennessee AFL-CIO staff members and affiliates congratulate President Dycus, Secretary-Treasurer Starling, and all of the newly-elected Executive Board members on their positions.
