Happy Labor Day!

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

This Labor Day I would like to recognize and personally thank you for the important work that you have done and that you continue to do. As an educator, you make our future brighter by making a difference in the lives of so many young children.

And you do it all in the face of attacks on our profession, your benefits, and on your rights.

That is why this Labor Day, I humbly ask you to join me in honoring your colleagues and fellow workers in all trades. You can do this by taking a moment to send a simple message of thanks with the AFL-CIO’s new easy-to-use tool that allows you to send video or e-card messages to the people whose work helps make your life better.

By sending a thank you message, you are helping your fellow workers feel appreciated, and reaffirming the value of their work. But more than that, you are demonstrating your solidarity and commitment to your role as a worker no matter the obstacles we face.

 Say thank you today to the workers in your life and have a wonderful Labor Day.

In Unity,

Diann Woodard
