Working Together, Leading the Way
Labor Day is an annual celebration of hardworking men and women and the accomplishments unions have made for working people. By working together, we have been able to fight for and achieve paid time off (including holiday pay, personal days and vacation time), increases in the minimum wage, medical benefits for our families, retirement security, Paid Family Leave, and so much more. Our time and dedication on the job deserves to be rewarded, and we must continue the fight for our stability and better benefits.
One way we celebrate these accomplishments is by coming together to show our strength at the Labor Day Parade. On September 9th, we’ll be marching in the Parade alongside members of dozens of other unions with a common goal in mind: to better the lives of working people.
Still today, we face pushback from anti-worker forces, but we will not stop fighting. At the Labor Day Parade, we can and must show just how strong we are when we stand together. We hope you and your family will join us next Saturday, September 9th as we march up Fifth Avenue sharing our union pride and strength in numbers.

As Always, and In Solidarity,
John R. Durso
