“I am deeply humbled and honored by the opportunity to represent the Quad City Federation of Labor,” Gosa said in a statement. “I look forward to working collaboratively with all of our affiliates and being a strong voice for labor. One of my top priorities will be working towards bringing all unions together in our joint effort to represent the interest of all working people.”

“It’s an honor to serve as the Illinois vice president of the Quad-City Federation of Labor,” Deppe said. “We stand together fighting for everyone’s rights.”
