Tula Connell got her first union card while she worked her way through college as a banquet bartender for the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee (they were represented then by a hotel and restaurant local union - the names of the national unions were different then than they are now). She currently serves as managing editor for the AFL-CIO Now blog. With her background in journalism, she has worked in the union movement since 1991, starting as a writer-editor at SEIU (and member of OPEIU).
Tula achieved a BA degree in Journalism from Marquette University, an MA in Modern European History from Yale and is now a doctoral candidate in U.S. labor history at Georgetown University.
Some of Tula's other interesting career highlights include covering bull roping in Texas as a reporter for the Stephenville Empire-Tribune and meeting Izzy Stone.
