Celebrate Labor Day with Wisconsin Workers

Social share icons

On Labor Day, we honor and celebrate the contributions of America's working people. We take pride in our union membership because we know what our union means to us. With a strong union, we have power on the job and earn a fair share for the work we do. From making sure we can retire with dignity, have the health care we need, advance workplace safety and secure better wages for all in our communities, unions are the key to prosperity for working families.

Local Labor Councils will be hosting Labor Day picnics, parades, and celebrations across the state. Join us on Monday, September 4, for a fun-filled union-made day.
