17 Union Member Photos of U@Work for Labor Day

Posted on September 2, 2013
  • print

For union members, Labor Day is more than the barbecue, the seasonal change, and the parade. It's a tribute to us, union members whose labor upholds the American standard of worker solidarity. The pride we feel on Labor Day builds upon a collection of stories, past and present, of union members whose continual fight has earned rights such as the 8-hour work day, equal pay laws, and child labor laws.


Check out these 17 photos submitted by union members, each one shining union pride at a different light. And if you haven't submitted your union photo, please submit today at www.UnionPlus.org/Contest for a chance to be one of 15 prize winners!
