I would like to take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you an enjoyable and safe Labour Day weekend. Take the time to enjoy your family and friends and to put aside the stresses of your everyday work life.
Please remember our Brothers and Sisters that are no longer with us but devoted their lives to building the Labour Movement that we have today.
Happy Labour Day Folks!!!!
