Brothers and Sisters,

As we celebrate this Labor Day with our family and friends, we are reminded of the many accomplishments of the Labor Movement and the remarkable achievements of our own International Association of Fire Fighters as we celebrate 100 years of progress through unity and strength.

Labor Day dates back to the late 19th century in the United States as trade and labor movements grew stronger. By 1894, when it became an official federal holiday, some 30 states had already been celebrating it. 

Samuel Gompers, one our country's first labor leaders, called Labor Day a time for workers to rest, look forward to tomorrow's work, stand in solidarity with other workers and "feel the stronger for it." Labor Day is not only a time to rest but a time to reaffirm our commitment to fighting for fair wages and workers’ rights throughout the nation.

For nearly 70 years, Local 1014 has fought hard for the wages, working conditions and benefits our members need and deserve as they protect our communities each and every day. Today unions across the nation are facing unprecedented challenges. As we commemorate all that we have done, we also remember there is much left to do. We cannot be complacent. 

As you celebrate, please remember to enjoy this holiday responsibly, DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE! Get a cab, get a ride or get a room. Please be safe out there!

On behalf of the Local 1014 Executive Board and the nearly 3,400 Firefighters, Paramedics, Dispatchers, Pilots, Wildland Firefighters, Forestry and Health HazMat personnel, we wish you a happy and safe Labor Day!

In Solidarity, 

President Dave Gillotte and your Executive Board
