Pride Month Profiles: Maureen Rooney

Maureen Rooney

For Pride Month, the AFL-CIO is spotlighting various LGBTQ+ Americans who have worked and continue to work at the intersection of civil and labor rights. Today’s Pride Month profile is Maureen Rooney of the Utility Workers (UWUA).

Maureen Rooney is currently the only female distribution field worker in her workplace. She’s a strong, independent woman who is up to the challenge of the important job of operating and maintaining water infrastructure systems. It is a physical job that involves working on fire hydrants, driving a truck and fixing water mains, and Rooney performs the duties as well as any of her coworkers.
