The Officers, Executive Board and Staff of IBEW Local 21 would like to wish all of our members a Happy and Safe Labor Day.
Working people are the backbone of our nation and need to be recognized as such, both in word and deed. Too often, those working every day for a better life are forced to take a back seat to corporate interests which care only about their own bottom line.
As we celebrate Labor Day let us remember the Labor movement has fought to gain benefits many workers enjoy today. By working together and standing as one we achieved such things as employee health care, pensions, workplace safety laws, the 40-hour workweek, the right to form unions, collective bargaining and countless other provisions that have built a strong middle class.
We all must do what it takes to protect these rights. We fight together. We move forward together.
