Labor Day Statement From AFSCME Ohio Council 8 President John A. Lyall

On this Labor Day I want to recognize your dedication as professionals to serve the communities where you live and work.

Labor Day means many things to many people — the end of summer, back to school, or a day off to spend with family and friends.

But for AFSCME members, Labor Day stands for something special. It’s a day to honor our work, to stand up, speak out and take pride in what we do.

It’s a day to reflect on the values we hold — that every worker should be able to have a job that can support a family. Where access to an education and affordable healthcare isn’t a luxury and a secure retirement is within everyone’s reach.

Thank you for your service and your dedication to keep our nation and our great union moving forward.

In Solidarity,

John. A. Lyall

President AFSCME Ohio Council 8
