Albany - On behalf of the 2.5 million members of the New York State AFL-CIO, I send by deepest condolences to the family of Congresswoman Louise Slaughter. I am so saddened to hear of her passing. Rep. Slaughter was a true champion of the labor movement who fought hard to protect the rights and enhance the lives of working men and women. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends during this most difficult time.
