Ribbons like this one were worn by Union officials, adding to the pomp and circumstance of events while identifying roles of participants. This one is for a Central Labor Union delegate to an event in Newport. The medallion bears the slogans, "Labor Omnia Vincit" (Labor Conquers All), and "Justice to All."
From the collection of D. Scott Molloy.
