Don’t Just Celebrate Labor! BUY IT!

The Landing

It’s tradition to celebrate Labor Day with barbecues and picnics, but this day means so much more. Labor/Labour Day was first recognized in both the United States and Canada in 1894 as an annual national holiday observed on the first Monday of September in tribute to the many social and economic achievements of the nations’ workers. Thanks to the hard work and sacrifices of the many trade unionists who came before us, we have much to be thankful for. Whether you’re participating in a union parade, festival, or cookout, Labor Day is the perfect opportunity to support your fellow organized workers by buying union-made goods.

Eight ALPA master executive councils are planning informational picketing at 16 locations across the United States and Canada before the Labor/Labour Day holiday weekend. All ALPA pilots are invited to join any location on September 1.
