"All workers should be thrilled with President Obama's nomination of Thomas Perez as Secretary of Labor. Mr. Perez has a long and distinguished record of standing up and fighting for the rights of his fellow Americans. He has worked hard to protect some of our nation's most vulnerable workers from discrimination and exploitation.

"Whether the issue was civil rights, immigration, education, health and safety, wages, health care or veterans' affairs, Mr. Perez has been on the side of working people every step of the way throughout his career.

"Most of all, Thomas Perez understands the challenges that working families face in this country and he has proven that he will be an aggressive champion for them. He's exactly the kind of advocate Americans deserve as their Labor Secretary, and we look forward to his swift confirmation."

The USW represents about 850,000 workers in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean in a wide variety of industries, ranging from glassmaking to mining, steel, oil, paper, tire and rubber to the public sector, service and health care industries.
