Century Of Service Honor Roll Of American Labor Organizations

Established in 1992 by Secretary of Labor Lynn Martin, the Century of Service Honor Roll of American Labor Organizations honors labor unions that have reached their 100th anniversary and their contributions in American history.

Today forty-five unions are enshrined in the Century of Service Honor Roll. Beginning in 2024 and every two years thereafter, unions that meet the criterion for induction will be recognized by the Department and have their placards placed in the exhibit.

Eligible entities must be international or national labor unions or labor organizations representing workers in the United States, who were established at least 100-years prior to their submission for induction into the Honor Roll.

The Century of Service exhibit is located in the North Plaza of the U.S. Department of Labor's Frances Perkins Building, 200 Constitution Ave NW, Washington, D.C.

The exhibit is maintained by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Administration and Management and is open to the public during government working hours.

If a labor organization meets the criterion and would like to be considered for induction into the Century of Service Honor Roll of American Labor Organizations, the Office of Public Engagement should be contacted by email at centuryofservice@dol.gov with supporting documentation that will help the Department make a final determination regarding eligibility.
