Labor Day
08/31/15 - Teamsters Local 577
President Ahearn's Labor Day Message: As we celebrate this Labor Day, it is important to remember that Unions created the middle class; crusaded for Social Security and Medicare; pushed through the 40-hour week, overtime pay, the minimum wage and paid vacations; campaigned for civil rights; won the right to collectively bargain and the right to strike; fought for unemployment insurance and workers compensation, pensions and employee health coverage; and pushed through laws against child labor and workshop conditions. And gave us the weekend. "It is one of the characteristics of a free and democratic nation that it have free and independent labor unions." Franklin D. Roosevelt, addressing a Teamster convention in Washington, September 11, 1940.
