AFL-CIO HAILS CHOICE OF REICH

 WASHINGTON, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- AFL-CIO President Lane Kirkland issued the following comment:
 We welcome the choice of Robert Reich as secretary of labor and look forward to working with him to strengthen worker rights and improve the standard of living of working people.
 Reich's experience and writing in the field of workplace economics mark him as exceptionally well qualified to participate as a full partner in the economic decision-making of the new Administration. In naming Reich, President-elect Clinton has chosen someone who recognizes the primary role of the labor of human beings in economic progress.
 We pledge our continued cooperation in finding ways for the federal government to assist working people in their daily struggles and to give them hope for the future. Robert Reich will make an important contribution to that effort.
