NJ AFL-CIO: Happy Thanksgiving to Our Labor Family

Wednesday, November 21, 2018

On behalf of the New Jersey State AFL-CIO, we wish you and your family a safe, happy, and healthy holiday. It remains our privilege to fight side-by-side with you for the principles and values that define our labor movement.

This Thanksgiving, given the historic midterm elections, we have a lot to be thankful for….but more than anything, we are thankful for the strength and solidarity of our brothers and sisters. We are a family, and whether organizing at the workplace, electing union members to public office, enacting laws that uplift all workers, or protecting our pensions, the future remains bright thanks to the work that you do.

We’d also like to remind you to be sure you shop union this holiday season. The same way the election showed the power of our collective voice, we can show the power of our collective wallets by buying only union-made products. Remember, when we purchase union-made goods, we aren’t just supporting good-paying union jobs, we are also helping to raise compensation standards for all workers.

Check out the resource pages below to help you and your family celebrate a union-made holiday:

Once again, we wish you and your family a happy, healthy Thanksgiving, and may the spirit of solidarity stay with you throughout the holiday season.
