The Vermont AFL-CIO has a new leader. Ron Pickering, who was head of the labor group for ten years, resigned from the top job Saturday at the organization’s state convention.
The new leader is 43-year-old Dan Brush, who is president of a printers’ union in Montpelier.
The Vermont AFL-CIO has 12,000 members. Brush says he plans to help the organization be more political, and more activist under his leadership.
