IAM Legislative Director Hasan Solomon has been selected to serve on the Board of Directors of the Congressional Black Caucus Political Education and Leadership Institute (CBCI). Solomon will serve as a labor liaison to the 44 members of the Congressional Black Caucus.
“Hasan has been our voice on Capitol Hill for well over a decade, fighting off the attacks on union members from those who want to take away our power,” said IAM International President Bob Martinez. “He demonstrates the very best of what the IAM is about and we could not be prouder to have him representing us and the entire labor community.”
Solomon, who is regarded as one of the top labor lobbyists on Capitol Hill, started with the IAM in 1999 in the Legal Department. After earning a law degree and passing the bar exam, he was promoted to Assistant General Counsel. In 2003, he was appointed Legislative Representative, later being promoted to Assistant Legislative Director and eventually named IAM National Legislative Director.
The CBCI is a non-profit, non-partisan, social purpose organization focused on training the next generation of political leaders and providing voters with relevant information regarding issues in their communities.
