    David is President Emeritus of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO so he has a unique perspective on what is happening inside and outside the labor union's stance on workers' rights as Governor Walker leads an assault on hard earned benefits.

    He is also a leader of the U.S. Labor Against War working to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan so the resources can be shifted to the domestic needs in the USA.
    Mr. Newby is a recognized national leader in political action and member mobilization, innovative workforce training and economic development, legislative initiative on behalf of working families and aggressive representation of the interests of all working people.
    David has led legislative campaigns for Family and Medical Leave, improved health and safety in the workplace, plant closing notification, expanded access to health care, and increases in the Minimum Wage.
