John Delloro, labor leader, reportedly dies

I noticed quite an outpouring of grief and and surprise on Facebook and Google from friends, labor activists and colleagues of John Delloro on his death today, reportedly of a heart attack. No media reports yet that I can find. Delloro was executive director of the Dolores Huerta Labor Institute, national president of the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance, and a former staffer for SEIU and AFCSME in Southern California. Delloro was also a UCLA visiting lecturer in Asian American Studies, and a member of the city's Board of Taxicab Commissioners. "Anyone who came through the L.A. labor movement knew John, who was a hero to Southern California workers and a bright light of Asian Pacific American studies and activism," writer and former City Hall aide Joshua Joy Kamensky posted on Facebook.
