Burger retiring from SEIU, Change to Win

The Hill, August 12, 2010

Anna Burger, a top labor leader at the SEIU and Change to Win, will leave that position, according to an official. Burger will retire from her positions as secretary-treasurer at the Service Employees International Union and chairwoman of the Change to Win coalition, marking an era of major transition for the powerful union. Her departure comes after she lost the election to replace Andy Stern as the top leader of the SEIU earlier this year, leaving Mary Kay Henry as the union's new president. SEIU has been one of the biggest boosters of President Obama's agenda, helping push through a number of legislative priorities and spending big on behalf of Democratic candidates.
