The Greater Boston Labor Council (GBLC) made history last week with the election of the first woman of color to its top office. Darlene Lombos, IUPAT took the helm a executive secretary-treasurer, replacing Richard Rogers, who officially retired after leading the GBLC for the past 16 years. Lombos brings to the position more than 20 years of community and youth organizing experience in the labor movement. “I am honored to lead such an amazing group of dedicated workers in the Boston area,” Lombos said. “Rich was a true mentor, and I look forward to continuing his legacy of empowering working families for years to come.”

OPEIU Local 6 applauds the election of Sister Lombos to lead the GBLC. We also want to thank Brother Rogers for his tireless dedication to our Labor Movement.
