“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!!”
