Sol Stetin, former president of the Textile Workers Union (TWU), a predecessor union of UNITE HERE, was an extraordinary man who fought tirelessly his entire life to promote labor and workers’ rights. He was one of the founders of the American Labor Museum and served as president from 1983 to 1992, and later as president emeritus from 1992 to his passing.
The American Labor Museum stands as a monument to all working people and immigrants. At this time, however, it stands as a living memorial to this extraordinary man who not only helped establish this learning center, but dedicated his entire retired life to promote its mission. His spirit will live forever and Sol Stetin will never be forgotten.
WHERE: AMERICAN LABOR MUSEUM, BOTTO HOUSE – 83 Norwood Street Haledon, NJ 07508
WHEN: Wednesday, July 13th at 10AM
All UNITE HERE staff, affiliate leaders and friends are invited to attend a memorial service to pay tribute to Sol’s legacy in the labor movement and his contributions to labor education.
