Dear Brothers/Sisters:

Re: Celebrate Labour Day

Monday, September 6, 2010 is a day to celebrate the power of our collective labour and solidarity. Together, we recognize and honour the contributions of all workers who struggle to make a fair wage and create a meaningful society. 

The efforts of the labour movement brought health and safety laws, shorter work weeks, the weekend, and labour standards to benefit all workers. But more than that, we also improved healthcare, student loans, social housing and public pensions, all of which have their roots in the groundwork laid by the labour movement. 

I sincerely wish PSAC members, their families and all Canadian workers, a safe and enjoyable Labour Day weekend. Join me as we celebrate the contributions of workers and their unions. 

In Solidarity,

Robyn Benson
