AFL-CIO President Trumka Statement on Passing of Theodore Bikel

Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on the passing of former AFL-CIO Executive Council Board Member, Theodore Bikel.

Theo’s passion on-stage was matched only by his passion for working people behind the scenes. His legacy will be felt by those who watched him on stage and screen, and by the countless actors he gave a voice to through his work in the labor movement.

His decades of service to his craft and his fellow actors will never be forgotten, and will serve to pave the way to a better life for the next generation of actors.
