On Labor Day 2023, America’s labor unions have reached a threshold.
In cities and towns across the nation, working people are waking up to their right to join together and demand the dignity and justice they deserve.
We see this play out as our country’s summer of strikes likely will extend into the fall and beyond. At Hollywood studios, hotels, government offices and countless other workplaces, working people recognize their collective power is the best option for improving their jobs and economic welfare.
Through unions, American workers can obtain a fair share of the profits made possible by their labor. Through unions, workers can ensure a safe, positive and productive working environment.
Unions have another role as well: a public voice for members and all working people.
