McMillan has served as Secretary-Treasurer of the federation since 2005. She has spearheaded the cause of getting national and international unions to invest in and organize the South.

In 2004, she took a job at the AFL-CIO’s Union Community Fund, where she met Andrews – beginning a 12 year partnership fighting for working families in North Carolina.
