Staff and members of SEIU Healthcare IL IN MO KS were deeply saddened to learn of the untimely passing of SEIU 32BJ president Héctor Figueroa.
As the leader of one of the labor movement’s most dynamic local unions, Héctor was deeply committed to the fight for justice for working people everywhere.
“I feel privileged to have known and worked with Héctor and to have benefited from his insight, intelligence, and ongoing drive to improve and expand organizing efforts in today’s ever-changing environment,” said SEIU Healthcare President Greg Kelley. “His passing is a tremendous loss to those of us who knew him—and to the labor movement at large.”
We extend our hearts and thoughts to his family, and to the SEIU 32BJ community.
