Happy Labor Day from IBEW Local 459

Monday, September 1, 2014

On behalf of all of us at IBEW Local 459, we want to wish you and yours a safe and Happy Labor Day. This weekend we all should take a minute to reflect on the many workplace rights and standards that we take for granted everyday. Many of life's enjoyments were achieved through workers organizing and coming together and we achieved so much only because labor was organized and provided a voice to working people. Make no mistake about it, Corporate America didn't just give us all we have today - it was fought for and earned. Such concepts as the weekend, paid vacations, medical benefits for you and your family, paid holidays and holidays off, sick days, a grievance procedure and annual raises. These concepts are a part of daily life now because of the men and women before us who fought and died for them. - Paul Cameron, Business Manger
