  David Dubinsky - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dubinsky was somewhat disenchanted with Sigman's leadership by this point; while he was a wholehearted supporter of Sigman's attack on the CPUSA within the union, he thought that Sigman was too abrasive, alienating the right wing almost reflexively, given his dislike of "union bureaucrats" gained through his years in the IWW.
Dubinsky was unwilling, on the other hand, to split the AFL into two competing federations and did not follow Lewis and the Amalgamated Clothing Workers when they formed the Congress of Industrial Organizations as a rival to, rather than a part of, the AFL.
Dubinsky regained his former positions as a vice president and member of the executive council of the AFL in 1945.

Dubinsky believed that the union should never “fight for bread alone.” In addition to securing pensions, unemployment insurance, increased minimum wages and a forty hour work week for his constituents, he also provided ILGWU members with cultural and leisure opportunities.
Dubinsky was also intimately involved with the various disputes among the AFL, the ILGWU, and the CIO (which he helped create in 1935 with John L. Lewis).
After the AFL and the CIO merged in 1955, Dubinsky was tasked to lead its Committee on Ethical Practices where he fought the influence of racketeering and organized crime which plagued many unions.

 David Dubinsky Biography | Encyclopedia of World Biography
Dubinsky (originally Dobnievski) was born in Brest-Litovsk in Russian Poland on Feb. 22, 1892, the youngest of six children in a poor Jewish family.
Dubinsky, however, returned illegally to Lodz and to union affairs, only to be arrested in 1908 and this time sentenced to exile in Siberia.
Dubinsky's heritage to the labor movement was a belief in militant economic action, a trust in reform politics, and a faith in the justice of a socially conscious capitalism.
