A celebration of Labor Day 2018

Posted by on Wed, Sep 5, 2018 @ 15:09 PM

Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of working men and women. It was started by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a United States federal holiday in 1894. Originally, Labor Day gave workers the chance to campaign for better working conditions and pay.

Today, union members in Canada and the U.S. celebrate the holiday in a number of different ways to remember the sacrifices made by past members. Through those sacrifices, members of organized labor have won collective bargaining rights that ensure safety, higher wages and a standardized workday. Below pictures are just some of the celebrations that our HFIAW Brothers and Sisters had to commemorate and honor the 2018 Labor Day.
