Thank you for your interest.
The real heroes of Labor are the men and women whose devotion and sacrifice made it possible to win a better life. Too often their contribution is not recorded and is forgotten. The Society believes that there is a dramatic story of dedication, which needs to be told in every union workplace in this state.
