So I want to revisit my interview almost a quarter-century ago with the man who was America’s top labor leader for 14 years.
John Sweeney was president of the AFL-CIO. I met him in 1996, about a year after he assumed the presidency of the Union.
I met him about a year after he became the president of the AFL-CIO.

John Sweeney remained at the top of the AFL-CIO until 2009.
He’s 86 now, and he and his wife live just outside Washington, DC.
