IVP-SE Warren Fairley

Will assume position held by IP Jones

THE AFL-CIO EXECUTIVE Council unanimously elected International Vice President – Southeast Warren Fairley to the council July 25. Fairley takes on the position formerly held by International President Newton B. Jones, who stepped down to devote more time to key Boilermaker conferences that are often scheduled at the same time as council meetings.

“I am honored that President Jones would recommend me to fill his position on the council,” said Fairley, “and that AFL-CIO President Trumka would support this recommendation.”

A 28-year member of Local 693 (Pascagoula, Mississippi), Fairley has served as IVP-SE since 2010. He also holds the positions of Executive Assistant to the International President and Director of Shipbuilding and Marine Division Services.

The AFL-CIO Executive Council is composed of the three top AFL-CIO officers and 55 vice presidents from the senior leadership of labor unions representing the 12.5 million members of the federation.
