).A State Department announcement says Shailor isinternationally recognized for her lifelong work to secure economic, social,and political rights for workers in the U.S. and throughout the world.The Bush administration did not fill the special representative position, and the job hasbeen vacant since 2002. Testifying before a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee in March2010, Michael Posner, assistant secretary of state for democracy, human rightsand labor,said the special representative would “greatly enhance” the Obama administration’s workto promote labor diplomacy:This individual will take the lead for the department in promoting strong labor diplomacy and ensuring a high-level focus on labor rights and employmentissues. This position…will also serve to strengthen the traditional ties of mybureau to labor stakeholders, including the global labor movement, as keycontributors and partners in labor diplomacy.On June 7,
Cathy Feingold
will take over as director of international affairs for the AFL-CIO, succeeding Shailor.
