Happy Labor Day

Monday, September 7, 2020

This year, Labor Day looks a lot different for many of us. The usual activities-the parades, backyard barbecues, and gatherings with friends and families-will be muted, postponed or canceled altogether.

But Labor Day always has meant more than just social events. It's a day to honor and celebrate the contributions of America's working people. And this past year our contributions could not have been greater.

As the nation faces three intertwined crises-a pandemic, an economic free fall and racial injustice-America's working people have shown the world what we've known all along-our work is essential.

We have also seen the devastation caused by incompetent and ineffectual leaders.  Right now, there's a comprehensive COVID-19 relief bill languishing in the U.S. Senate, and working people are suffering needlessly.

The HEROES Act would provide an emergency infectious disease standard to protect working people along with many other needed assistance programs. Make sure you are registered and make sure you make your vote count by voting for the candidates that will put the American worker at the forefront.

This Labor Day let's honor the hard work of our union brothers and sisters!
