Pride Month Profiles: Wendy Kistner

For Pride Month this year, the AFL-CIO is spotlighting various LGBTQ+ workers who have worked and continue to work at the intersection of civil and labor rights in the United States. Today's profile is Wendy Kistner of the Heat and Frost Insulators (HFIU).

Wendy Kistner has been an HFIU Local 3 member for more than eight years, being the first woman voted in as a trustee in 2022. She faithfully attends the Tradeswomen Build Nations conference, always ready and willing to learn more about her trade. Kistner volunteers her time at outreach programs. Kistner's son Zaine is a third-year apprentice in HFIU Local 3, proudly continuing in her footsteps.
