Women's History Month Profiles: Jessica Ackler

Jessica Ackler

This year, for Women's History Month, we're taking a look at a group of leaders who are currently active making women's 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 Jessica Ackler of the Heat and Frost Insulators (HFIU).

Jessica Ackler, a 16-year member of HFIU Local 14, embodies the spirit of resilience and service as a U.S. Army veteran, a devoted mother of three and a trailblazer in her union. Both of her grandfathers and her father were insulators and Ackler carries on the family legacy with pride and dedication. Her marriage to a fellow insulator reflects a shared commitment to hard work and strong union ethics. Ackler's unwavering determination, coupled with her passion for empowering women in traditionally male-dominated industries, serves as a beacon of inspiration and advocacy not only for her fellow union members, but for women everywhere.
