While We All Gather Together With Family & Friends This Holiday Season, What Are You - As A Union Member - Most Thankful For This Year?

Comments

I learned many years ago from some very Seasoned Labor Leaders that a Very Progressive Lead Union will protect their Members from themselves. In most cases, this has played out to be true. Bottom line - if it wasn't for Public and Private Sector-Represented Labor Unions and Collective Bargaining, there would be a whole lot more Working-Class People in a situation to have to work the rest of their lives. They would have NO PENSION (Defined Benefit Pension Plan) to draw on for the rest of their lives - along with Annuity Money, and of course, Social Security. Unfortunately, far too many People will only draw Social Security but can't live on that alone. Labor Unions created the Middle Class and are fighting like hell to preserve it. So, I'm so thankful for the Power and Strength of my International Union of Painters & Allied Trades and its very wise leadership. In Solidarity, WE ARE ONE!
