ST. LOUIS – The Missouri AFL-CIO has chosen Mike Louis to continue in his role as president of the organization.
“Thank you to all of my sister and brother delegates for your support,” Louis said in a statement. “I will continue to fight as hard as I can to save Missouri from the lies of right to work and to ensure that Missouri’s working-class families live in dignity. It is my honor and a privilege to continue to serve along with Jacob Hummel Secretary-Treasurer and Reggie Thomas Vice President as the President of the Missouri AFL-CIO.”
Delegates of the Missouri AFL-CIO unanimously elected Louis, Hummel, and Thomas at their convention in St. Louis on Monday. Louis had been the longtime Secretary-Treasurer and had been the de facto leader of Missouri’s largest labor union for several months following former President Hugh McVey’s retirement announcement before assuming the role.
