UAW chief set to appear on Capitol Hill after strike victory

United Auto Workers (UAW) President Shawn Fain is expected to make an appearance on Capitol Hill on Tuesday to discuss the role of unions in fighting back against “corporate greed,” following the UAW’s record deal last month to end the longest auto strike in 25 years.

Fain will be among several speakers at a hearing Tuesday titled “Standing Up Against Corporate Greed: How Unions are Improving the Lives of Working Families” held by the Democratic-led Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee.
