“Unions have been the backbone of the workforce. History says that unions began in the 19th century, but I often like to think and refer to slave rebellions as the first models of unions showing us what it meant to build community and power in numbers.”

“Unions remind us that we are not alone and I’m grateful for the benefits I have due to union organizing. Our fights are not alone and in the words of Fannie Lou Hamer, “No one is free until we are all free.”
