PORT CHESTER, NY and YONKERS, NY — September , 2019 — On this this national holiday, we are reminded that when people, particularly workers, come together, express their concerns, and speak in a unified voice–those in power will listen and respond. Today, we celebrate the right to collectively bargain, workplace safety standards, a 40-hour work week, and so many other hard-fought workplace protections. We know these rights were won through the power of people coming together and demanding dignity in the workplace and a fair day’s wage for a fair day’s work.
