Brothers and Sisters,

As we celebrate International Workers’ Day, also known as May Day, on Monday, May 1, let’s take some time to honor the contributions of workers to building our great nation and building a labor movement that has fought and sacrificed to improve the lives of working-class Americans.

International Workers’ Day is commemorated on the same day all over the world. The day was declared in 1889 in commemoration of the brave workers, many of them immigrants, who demonstrated in Haymarket Square in Chicago for the eight-hour workday. We must never forget what our forefathers fought and died for – the rights of working people everywhere.

Local 4 is proud of the achievements and hard work of our members, and our commitment to one another. Thank you for your continued dedication to our great local Union!

In solidarity,

William D. McLaughlin
