Labor Heritage Foundation to Honor IP Newton B. Jones

THE LABOR HERITAGE Foundation has announced it will honor International President Newton B. Jones with an award May 19 at AFL-CIO headquarters in Washington, D.C.

The Foundation uses music and the arts to strengthen the Labor Movement and promote knowledge of the cultural heritage of the American worker. It also conducts historical research through written and oral histories.

“It is quite an honor to be chosen for this award,” said IP Jones. “The Boilermakers union has long celebrated our rich history and heritage. Over the past decade, we have reorganized and expanded our archives, commissioned professionally-developed films, published our Grace Under Pressure history book and created an online museum of film and photography. We are proud to be recognized by the Labor Heritage Foundation and applaud the important work it performs for the Labor Movement.”
