Fidel Velázquez (Statue in front of the INFONAVIT office in Mexico City)


Mexican union leader who was one of the original 1936 co-founders, along with Vicente Lombardo Toledano, of the Confederation of Mexican Workers (CTM), the national labor federation most closely associated with the ruling party, the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). He replaced Lombardo as the leader of the CTM in 1941, then expelled him from it in 1948. He led the CTM, which grew increasingly corrupt and conservative, until his death on 21 June 1997 at the age of 97.
