Long-time Rep. Dingell, a Friend to Workers

The Teamsters are saying goodbye to a long-time friend and champion of workers who made it his mission to be a voice for those who too often didn’t have one in the halls of Congress.

Retired Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.), 92, the “Dean of the House” whose 59 years as a member of the chamber is the longest in U.S. history, died Feb. 7 after a battle with prostate cancer. He leaves behind a six-decades-long record of progress for labor rights, civil rights and health care expansion.
