Message From Local 2013 President Louis Mark Carotenuto:

Dear Local 2013 Members,
Given all that you do for our union family and yours, I wish I could thank you personally. The truth is that nobody works harder than you and our members, especially during the holidays. All across this country, we process and prepare the food America eats, we sell the clothes they wear, and help them get better when that cold comes along. We take care of our elderly in homes all across the nation, and drive our children to school. From retail and grocery stores, to food processing plants and nursing homes, you and our 1.3 million members make our communities better and our union stronger.
Even as you work hard every day, countless number of our members like you volunteer and help others by donating food to fight hunger, fundraising to fight cancer, and standing together to fight for the better life you have earned and deserve. You not only make the holidays happen; you make America better for it.
And so, as you prepare to spend time with family this holiday season, I want to thank you. Thank you for everything you do. Thank you for making our union employers and communities better.
Thank you for all of the long days and nights and weekends you work, the sacrifices you make,
the excellent service and expertise you provide. May you and your loved ones have a safe and happy holiday season.
Thank you.


Sincerely and fraternally,
