George L. P. Weaver (May 18, 1912 – July 14, 1995) was an American trade unionist, active in promoting civil rights both in the U.S. and internationally. After serving as Assistant Secretary of Labor for International Affairs in both the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, he was in 1968 elected chair of the governing board of the U.N.'s International Labour Organization. In 1955, a US union official described him as "one of the outstanding Negro trade unionists in the United States and ... a leading figure in the fight against discrimination and segregation."
