Labor Day 2022: Celebrating workers today and always. 

Brothers and Sisters,

This Labor Day is about all of us coming together, as a movement, for more than 130 years. We celebrate workers who have fought bravely throughout our history to make our country prosperous and fair in the face of brutal working conditions and fear of retaliation and who continue to fight together today. 

We know first-hand that a strong labor movement is essential to supporting a strong middle class — and it’s no surprise to us that support for unions is surging across America.  

Across professions, we’ve fought and won essential protections and benefits alongside our union Brothers and Sisters including the highest workplace and industry standards, minimum wage and overtime protections, and the right to a secure retirement. 

Together, we have persevered to create infrastructure that promotes safe workplaces, builds strong communities, and advocates for economic security for all.

On behalf of all of us at Local 7, thank you for your hard work, expertise, and dedication to our craft. We hope you all have a safe, enjoyable Labor Day, and take a moment to rest and be proud of all that we’ve accomplished together.

In Solidarity,

Michael Hess
