Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Evan M. Weston, known as Ed most of his life, began his labor career as a coal miner in Black Diamond. During that time he joined the United Mine Workers. Weston left the mines in 1916 to work in Seattle in longshoring and building construction. When he started work in the shipyards he joined Local 104 of the Boilermaker's Union, served as its business representative about 1928-1937; and then served as president, 1937-1941. He was secretary of the Seattle Metal Trades Council from approximately 1933-1937, and president of the Pacific Coast Metal Trades Council from 1943-1944, having been involved in that organization since the original negotiations for a coastwide agreement. In 1945 Weston was elected President of the Washington State Federation of Labor, serving until his retirement in 1962.
