Herman an Unusual Power Player
Alexis Herman's work in attempting to resolve the UPS strike is being praised by members of both sides, and she is credited with the resumption of direct negotiations that took place Thursday, August 14. The Secretary of Labor is the lone African-American woman among white men. Political consultants say that she has a "light touch" that will be necessary for her work to end the strike.
