Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As we celebrate Independence Day, I encourage you to take a moment to reflect on the significance of the 4th of July and its relation to the ideals of our democracy. This day serves as a reminder of the collective power we possess as workers, and the hard-fought achievements made by the fearless men and women who came before us to establish an enduring nation founded on the principles of freedom, justice, and equality.

The 4th of July is not only a day for fireworks and barbecues, but also a time to honor the democratic principles that are the foundation of our country. Democracy allows us to use the power of our collective voice and affords us the right to shape our own destinies. As union members, we understand the importance of coming together, advocating for our rights, and ensuring fair treatment and representation for all workers.

Now more than ever, let us remember that democracy in this country is not guaranteed. It requires our active participation and engagement in shaping the future of our country – one where no one is above the law and our elected officials are responsive to the people they represent. As we celebrate this 4th of July, let’s pledge to protect the principles of democracy and work towards a society that upholds the values of equality, justice, and opportunity for every individual.

May this Independence Day serve as a reminder of our shared responsibility to strengthen and protect the democratic ideals that have carried our nation forward for nearly two and a half centuries. I wish you all a joyous and safe celebration of the 4th of July!

In Solidarity,


Randy Erwin
National President
