Special Thanksgiving Message from President Yvonne R. Walker


The Thanksgiving holiday has a time-honored tradition of gathering with our closest friends and families and reflecting on our many blessings.

This year, I am thankful for many things.

I’m thankful to be surrounded by so many caring and dedicated members of our Local 1000 family, who stand up and fight for social, economic and environmental justice for all of us.

I’m thankful for the opportunity to create a better life for working families; to share a unified vision of improving our lives at work and at home in our communities.

I’m thankful that no matter what obstacles and challenges we may face, we face them together.

My best wishes for a happy Thanksgiving.

In solidarity,

Yvonne R. Walker
