“Did you enjoy your time off this holiday season?

You can thank a work union for that. In the early 20th century unions were behind the movement to get shorter work weeks to have more leisure time and spend more time with family.

Whether you are part of a union, considering joining a union or know a family/friend who is part of a union, they have played a pivotal role in our society. They have helped ensure better working conditions, higher pay, job security, health care, unemployment benefits and vacation time – just to name a few of the improvements they’ve made to workers’ lives. Unions have done so much to shape our daily lives. So thank you, unions!!”
