Happy Labor Day

Monday, September 2, 2019
Labor Day was created in 1882 when union workers took to the streets to educate the public as to who is unionized, what they do, and what their issues are. They had two goals: to build Solidarity within the labor movement and garner public understanding and support for their issues.

Labor Day is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American Workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions worker have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Join us in Solidarity in Pittsburgh, PA on Monday, September 2nd and prove that Labor is alive and well in Western Pennsylvania and continues to be a vital part of our communities.
