President's Message

Following a joint meeting of its Executive Board and Committee on Political Education (COPE) held last week, the Tennessee AFL-CIO Labor Council is announcing its list of endorsed candidates ahead of the August 4th State and Federal Primary Election.

Tennessee AFL-CIO President Billy Dycus and Secretary-Treasurer A.J. Starling issued the following statement on the passing of former, longtime Secretary-Treasurer Eddie Bryan.

"Tennessee’s labor movement lost a legend early this morning. Eddie was a larger-than-life figure who never met a stranger and always had a smile on his face. It is truly impossible to not associate the fight for workers’ rights in our state with his name. No words can adequately describe how grateful we are for all of his contributions to our labor family throughout his remarkable life.
