HAPPY NEW YEARS
This is always a hopeful time, as we celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of another. And while 2020 was difficult for many, we must also look back on this year with the knowledge that brighter days are ahead of us – that although our challenges are great, each of us has the courage and determination to rise up and meet them.
Unions demonstrate the power of collective action. When workers join together, they gain the clout to get better wages and benefits, safe workplaces, world-class training and improved working conditions. On our own, we can’t make any of these gains. When we access our collective power, unions are essential to making a better, more just world for all.
Brothers and sisters, we have been winning. And even when we don’t win each battle, the very act of fighting is winning. When we fight, we are defining our vision, experiencing the joy of collective action, and creating the world we want.
This week, as Local 3 members across the country gather with family and friends, we want to wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year.
“Labor never quits. We never give up the fight – no matter how tough the odds, no matter how long it takes.”
