Tula Connell's Blog

You can browse through and read more entries from Tula's complete historical blog archives here, as her archive continues growing.

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. She welcomes visitors here to comment on her blog posts. We're very honored that Tula has joined our writers' community at
