NEW YORK — Family, friends and former colleagues of Jack Sheinkman gathered Wednesday to remember him as a fiery labor leader and human rights advocate.
Sheinkman, who died of pneumonia in January at age 77, was the last president of the Amalgamated Clothing & Textile Workers Union. He retired in 1995 when the ACTWU and the International Ladies Garment Workers Union merged into UNITE.
