Unions Can Revive the American Dream
Updated On: Sep 16, 2020
Sept. 16, 2020 | OPINION | […] Our message must be heard by those wanting to destroy labor unions and our right to bargain collectively to improve the standard of living for working Americans.

Our words must be heard by those who want to control the ballot box and our words must be heard by those who will do anything to deny Americans their right to vote in our free elections… It is our collective responsibility to show the people what a labor union is, where our strength comes from, who the union belongs to, what collective bargaining is and what we mean by union solidarity… The CT Mirror
