Shielding Our Protectors

Labor Day
Posted On: Sep 03, 2018

On June 28, 1894 President Grover Cleveland signed into law a bill passed by Congress making Labor Day a national holiday.  This came about because in the late 19thcentury American workers were toiling 12 hours a day, seven days a week, many times in unsafe conditions.  Labor Day “is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.” That dedication perseveres today as union members and leaders around this great Country continue to fight to keep and obtain collective bargaining rights for American workers, thereby allowing them to work for fair wages, satisfactory fringe benefits, and safe working conditions.  I would like to take a moment to thank every union member and leader for their hard work toward this goal, and especially to the members of the Ohio Fraternal Order of Police Legislative Committee who are constantly engaged in this fight at the Statehouse.
