ACD and Local 1804-1’s John Daggett Named Top Labor Leader By Irish Echo Newspaper

Mairead Tully of the Irish Echo Newspaper presents John Daggett, Atlantic Coast District Vice President and an officer with ILA Local 1804-1 with the Labor Heritage Award as part of the Irish Labor Top 50 Ceremonies held Friday evening, November 7th, 2014 at the Edison Hotel Ballroom in Manhattan.

“The ILA has a long history of Irish American leaders – from Teddy Gleason to my father Harold Daggett. I proud to now join my brother, Dennis Daggett, as a recipient of this Irish Echo Labor Award,” John Daggett said to an overflow crowd, including many ILA members. “I thank my Local 1804-1 for their support and all my ILA Sisters and Brothers who came here tonight to support me.”
Two years ago, John’s brother Dennis, the President of the Atlantic Coast District, was the recipient to the same award from the leading Irish American newspaper.
