Black History Month Profiles: Jeffrey Dukes

Black History Month Profiles: Jeffrey Dukes

Jeffrey Dukes

This year, for Black History Month, we’re taking a look at a group of leaders who are currently active making Black history across the labor movement. Check back daily for a new profile and meet some of the people working to improve not only their community, but also to improve conditions for working people across the country. Today’s profile is Jeffrey Dukes of the United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters.

Jeffrey Dukes embodies everything great that’s associated with organized labor. As an apprentice with UA Local 85, he has worked on the election committee and has been involved in community activities and events such as food drives and restoration of the Sanford Dam. As a delegate to the Mid-Michigan Area Labor Council, he not only attends meetings, but is an active participant who encourages others to get involved in food packaging, ramp builds and supporting our brothers, sisters and siblings from BCTGM on the picket line.
