Happy Labor Day Weekend

Happy Labor Day Weekend, from your brothers and sisters in Teamsters for a Democratic Union.

ThinkstockPhotos-824290974_thumb.jpgOn Labor Day, we celebrate the union movement—the folks that brought you the weekend, the 8-hour day, retirement with dignity. Those victories weren’t handed to us—workers united and fought hard to win them, often with great sacrifice.

Employers and corporate politicians want to roll these gains back. To defend them, we’ve got to put more movement back in the labor movement. That’s what TDU is all about. 

Enjoy the long weekend with family and friends. Wear your Teamster colors proudly at the Labor Day parade or picnic. Then let’s hit the ground running this fall working to rebuild union power. That’s how we honor those heroes who built the labor movement. 

TDU members are gearing up for our 2019 Convention in Chicago on November 1-3.

Now’s the time to book your travel and make plans to attend 3-days of the best educational workshops for Teamsters around and join the growing movement to Take Back Our Union.
