Art was a member of the West Hartford Police Department - AFSCME Council 15. After he retired from the force he joined the State of Connecticut Judicial Department working in Rockville - AFSCME Council 4.
20-year plus Delegate, Greater Hartford Central Labor Council
Advocate for Civil Rights
Sol Ushery was a true Union leader and supporter - he rarely if ever, missed a Labor Council meeting. He was employed by the City of Hartford and President of his local - AFSCME Council 4. When he retired Clarke King, 2009 Labor Council Executive Vice President, took over from Sol as the local’s president.
