As the summer days grow shorter, our kids head back to school, and football season starts to heat up, it means Labor Day is right around the corner! For many of us, this holiday is synonymous with a long weekend spent with family and friends, but knowing its history is important. Know that YOU are the reason behind this holiday. It was the labor movement that pushed for a holiday to celebrate the role all of us have played in building our nation.
Our IBEW brothers and sisters have proudly taken the torch from previous generations and pushed our North American labor achievements to new heights. So, as you are enjoying your time off this Labor Day, remember to take a minute to reflect on how you have contributed to your union and its achievements. Be proud of your hard work sisters and brothers and have a happy Labor Day!
