National Vice President McCubbin Elected to AFL-CIO Executive Council

AFGE is proud to announce that National Vice President George McCubbin III has been newly elected to the AFL-CIO Executive Council during the AFL-CIO’s quadrennial convention on Sunday, Oct. 22.

“I’m honored to be joining the AFL-CIO Executive Council and look forward to working with my fellow union leaders to organize more workers and better engage with all union families,” McCubbin said.

Born and raised in San Diego to a Mexican-born mother and Arkansas-born father, McCubbin started his federal government career as a military policeman with the U.S. Army. His granddaughter currently serves in the Army and is the 4th generation of McCubbins to serve their country.

McCubbin worked for the U.S. Border Patrol for 27 years and served as National Border Patrol Council President. He currently is National Vice President for AFGE’s 12th District, which represents federal workers in California, Nevada, Arizona, and Hawaii.

Besides McCubbin, AFGE National President J. David Cox Sr. also was reelected to another four-year term on the council.

Cox and McCubbin were among 55 vice presidents elected to the AFL-CIO Executive Council. Delegates to the AFL-CIO 28th Constitutional Convention in St. Louis also elected Richard Trumka (UMWA) as AFL-CIO president, Liz Shuler (IBEW) as secretary-treasurer, and Tefere Gebre (UFCW) as executive vice president.

“AFGE’s membership in the AFL-CIO puts us in a stronger position to serve the 700,000 federal and D.C. government workers we represent and ensures that our members have a voice in guiding the future of the American labor movement,” Cox said.

Three national officers and 55 vice presidents make up the AFL-CIO Executive Council , which guides the daily work of the federation. AFL-CIO is the umbrella labor federation representing 12.5 million working people nationwide.
