On September 17, 2015, Archbishop Blase Cupich addressed the Chicago Federation of Labor. He defined the purpose of the meeting and his speech in his address: “One of my priorities since arriving in Chicago is to build bridges and partnerships. Today, I reach out to leaders of the labor movement and all who are here today. I see this opportunity as the first of many to build on the proud tradition of collaboration and common commitment between Labor and the Church.”
