The latest on California politics and government

Jack Henning, a longtime leader in California's labor movement who served in the administrations of Gov. Pat Brown and Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson, died today at his San Francisco home, labor officials said.

Henning was 93.

"Jack was a lion of a man and a great labor leader," said Art Pulaski, head of the California Labor Federation. "His vision and his magnificent oratory inspired several generations of union activists."

The CLF released a brief biography on Henning, which can be found on the CLF website by clicking here.
