On Monday, September 2, we celebrate the achievements of the union movement – safe work places, the 8-hour workday, collective bargaining contracts that build our middle class -- and we pledge to keep up the fight for all working people. We stand together, united for the freedom of every worker to collectively bargain together for a better life.

Celebrate Labor Day on September 2. Join with union brothers and sisters and community members around the state as we honor all who labor at these great union-made events in Wisconsin.
