Please See the Important Message From the Central Labor Council Below Regarding This November’s Crucial New York State Election:

Brothers & Sisters,

November 7th is rapidly approaching, and TOMORROW, Friday, October 13th, is the last day to register to vote in our local Mayoral, Public Advocate, City Comptroller, and City Council races.

Tomorrow is also the last day to register to vote against Prop 1 – the Constitutional Convention ballot question, or “Con Con.”

It goes without saying that voting is our civic duty,  but it is also our duty as union members to ensure that NYC labor’s unified stance against the “ConCon” is heard loud and clear.

Visit vote.nyc.ny.us to register today!

All,

As we get ready to wind-down the summer with the LABOR DAY Holiday weekend, let’s remember what this day is all about – a day of Remembering and Honoring the sacrifice of all who came before us in labor. Those who worked tirelessly to make a good life for themselves and their families; those who were injured or killed in the workplace because of unsafe working conditions that needed to be brought to the forefront and corrected so others would not face the same injuries or tragedies; those who fought to get a decent living wage and took on the fight against BIG BUSINESS;  those who fought to correct the injustice of corporate greed; those who fought for the working man and woman to have a VOICE and a place at the bargaining table through ORGANIZED LABOR; those who created and are the heart of the middle-class working to achieve the American Dream so their children can have a better life then they did.

We all work hard to achieve a decent, well-earned place on this earth. At the heart of it, we all just want to be treated with decency and respect and be able to enjoy our families and be happy. So, while you enjoy this holiday weekend, please take a moment to reflect and in your own way say a prayer of thanks and remembrance for all who have sacrificed to make things just a little better; and most of all….

KEEP UP THE FIGHT; STAND IN SOLIDARITY WITH PRIDE AND DEDICATION TO CONTINUING THE FIGHT TO MAKE A BETTER WORKPLACE – A BETTER MIDDLE-CLASS – A BETTER COUNTRY.

 

Wishing you all a Safe and Happy LABOR DAY!

Louis Mark Carotenuto
President
U.F.C.W Local 2013
