American Labor and Irish National Caucus Working Together for Justice in IrelandI know that Father McManus has moved the needle from justice and human rights, and, Father, for that I offer you, on behalf of the entire AFL-CIO, a sincere, Thank you." - President Richard L. Trumka AFL-CIO, February 3, 2016.
Fr. Sean McManus—President of the Capital Hill-based Irish National Caucus—has had a very long on-going association with American Labor. He founded the Irish National Caucus on February 6, 1974. In February 1975, the Executive council of the AFL-CIO invited him to Bal Harbour, FL, to brief them on the Irish Issue. The Executive Council endorsed the Irish National Caucus. Then about ten years later, the Executive Council invited Fr. McManus to brief them on the Mac Bridge Principles—a corporate code of conduct for American companies doing business in Northern Ireland. The AFL-CIO became the first significant group to endorse the Mac Bride Principles.
President Trumka, Tefera Gebre, Liz Powell and John Sweeney have each been awarded with the World Peace Prize of "Roving Ambassador for Peace" by Fr. McManus—who is also Chief Judge of the international and interfaith World Peace Prize (headquartered in Seoul, South Korea). President Trumka will also receive the new World Peace Prize for LABOR LEADERSHIP on June 19, 2018
