Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Judy Biggert (R-IL), member of the House Education and the Workforce Committee, will address attendees at the ABA HR and Labor Conference in Chicago at the conference’s Welcome Reception on Sunday, July 15.
“We are very pleased to have Representative Biggert attend the ABA HR and Labor Conference welcome reception,” said Cory Martin, ABA director of government relations. “Being a member of the House Education and the Workforce Committee, Representative Biggert has been at the forefront of many critical issues impacting the baking industry. From providing much needed oversight to the National Labor Relations Board to co-sponsoring pro-baking industry legislation such as the Workforce Democracy and Fairness Act, Congresswoman Biggert has led the charge to protect our industry.”
Representative Biggert began her legislative career in 1992, when she was elected to the Illinois House of Representatives to serve the newly created 81st District. She was elected to represent the Illinois 13th Congressional district in 1998. “Representative Biggert has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the issues impacting the baking industry,” continued Martin. “We look forward to discussing with her what Congress has in store for the remainder of the year and how the industry can best protect itself from future labor and HR-related challenges.”
