Nee: ``There's been a couple of situations where serious errors were made.''
And George Nee, president of the local chapter of the AFl-CIO - a federation of unions representing nearly 60,000 public sector employees. In many ways Walsh and Nee have been the public face of organized labor in Rhode Island. They have been in the thick of not only of the most recent pension discussions at the General Assembly, but changes over the past two decades. Nee: ``No. Nee: ``My guess at the moment is that it won't. I for two reasons, one is that I think people are pensioned out and don't want another fight, because there will be a big fight on it.'' Hummel: ``Despite the gravity.'' Nee: ``Despite the gravity. Nee: ``And they actually have. Nee: ``I don't think - there's little or no since November collective bargaining going on.'' Nee says while the state isn't going to go bankrupt - it is a wakeup call for union workers in local communities. Nee: ``Well, I think it's more on the local level than the state level. Nee also says decisions made far away from the States House will affect the pension system going forward. Nee: ``We have a whole different world that investments are made in.

AFL-CIO President George Nee
While this increase is a step in the right direction for the workers of the state, there is still more progress to be made. As President of the Rhode Island AFL-CIO George Nee stated at the event, " We would have liked $10.10, but you know we live in a world where sometimes there are compromises. President Nee continued, " We will be competitive with the state of Connecticut and 40 cents behind Massachusetts, so we'll come back again next year. But, I think the most significant thing is that we are now $2.35 ahead of the federal minimum wage." IMG_2109 Rhode Island AFL-CIO President George Nee introduces Governor Gina Raimondo

George Nee
President, Rhode Island AFL-CIO George Nee has been a leader of the Rhode Island labor movement for 35 years and currently serves as president of the Rhode Island AFL-CIO. Nee’s dedication to organized labor and civil rights began in earnest when he was inspired to leave Boston College in 1969 to help organize the grape boycott for the United Farm Workers of America in Dorchester, Massachusetts. After the successful conclusion of the grape boycott, which resulted in union contracts and improved working conditions for farm workers, Nee continued to work with the organization both in California and New England. In 1971, the farm workers’ union sent him to Rhode Island to coordinate a lettuce boycott. By working alongside uneducated farm workers who spoke little English, Nee solidified his belief that the right to organize and the power of collective action were the keys that would allow hard working people to take control of their economic futures. In 1976, Nee organized an array of low paid employees including jewelry workers, clerical workers, and healthcare workers in Rhode Island into a formidable group that eventually became the Service Employees International Union, Local 76. Nee served that organization as its founding president from 1976 to 1983. Nee joined the Rhode Island AFL-CIO as its executive director in 1983. He was elected secretary-treasurer in 1991 and president in 2009. During the 1980s, George resumed his studies and became a graduate of Rhode Island College in 1990. In his current role as AFL-CIO president, George is actively involved in economic development projects, serving on the Rhode Island Convention Center Authority; the Providence Performing Arts Center (PPAC); the Human Resource Investment Council; and the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation. He is also chairman of the board of the Institute for Labor Studies and Research and an executive board member of The United Way of Rhode Island. He is a member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church in South Providence and presided this year as the Grand Marshal of Providence’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade. George has been married to Anne Sliney for 33 years. George and Anne have three adult children: Patrick, Katie, and Brigid.
