Happy Labor Day to all Local 302 members and their families. On Monday, September 4, 2023 we celebrate the contributions of workers to the development and achievements of the United States.

The holiday has its roots in the labor union movement, specifically the eight-hour day movement, which advocated for a fair work-life balance. Let’s take a moment to appreciate the efforts of all workers who have helped build America.

Enjoy a well-deserved day of rest and festivities.
