Our Day, Our Time
On Monday September 3rd, residents o the United States and Can-ada celebrated Labor (Labour or our Canadian Brothers and Sisters)Day. For many people this day symbolizes the end o summer and is embraced because o the long weekend that it provides. However,or those o us in organized labor, this day carries with it much moresignifcance.
One hundred and thirty years have passed since the rst Labor Day ob-servance took place. The origins in the United States can be traced to Sep-tember 5, 1882 when the Central Labor Union in New York City organizedan unpaid day o or union workers who marched around Union Square tosupport the creation o the holiday.In Canada, the roots o Labour Day can be traced to the year 1872 whenthe Toronto Trades Assembly organized the rst “workingman’s demonstra-tion” to support the elimination o a law that included the language “tradeunions were criminal conspiracies in restraint o trade”.From those points orward, organized protests and demonstrations con-tinued, but it was not until 1894 that both the United States and Canadiangovernments enacted legislation to make the rst Monday in September o each year a legal holiday.Today those past struggles seem almost hard to imagine. The growth andstrength o the labor movement has been a driving orce in achieving mucho what society takes or granted today. Unortunately, much o today’smainstream media seems intent on ocusing on the benets that union mem-bers have achieved and they try to paint a picture o those benets being toogenerous in today’s economic times. What seems to get lost in this type o reporting is that those benets andconditions were collectively bargained or and anybody that has bargainedknows that employers never “gave” us anything. Unions had to go throughthe give and take process that is a negotiation and over time achieved thecollective agreements that exist today.In the past we primarily viewed the employer as the entity that wouldattempt to attack our hard won gains. However, as President Loeb so rightly points out, today it is the politicians that are increasingly impacting our working lives by enacting or attempting to enact legislation to weakenunions with the ultimate goal being to destroy unions.In the United States there will soon be the opportunity to elect politiciansthat support the needs o working people. In Canada the ght against BillC-377 demonstrates how you can end up on deense ater an election. Ac-complishing our goals has never been easy, but that has never deterred us.They named a day ater us because we are a relevant and important part o society. This is our time and our challenge and we are up to the task.
 The clock is ticking. Much like the end o a movie thriller, there aretremendous stakes in choosing the right option, the one that savesthe lives o countless innocents. Our clock, labor’s clock, has been ticking or longer than we’ve wanted, as time ater time in the past our years legislators have been elected with anti-union agendas that  will go a long way toward crippling organized labor and depriving thousands o working amilies o their livelihoods and their utures.But unlike those innocents in the movies, we don’t need a fctional hero to rescue us – we’re the ones who need to do it, to step up, to get our own “boots on the ground” and save ourselves.
The IATSE endorsed President Obama or a second term and did sobecause as challenging as it has been during these past our years, he haspledged his support or all working people across this nation. PresidentObama’s opponent, Mr. Romney, on the other hand wants nothing morethan to destroy us and the entire labor movement, and take the voice o  workers in general out o the political process. (You can see or yoursel by watching a video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JepSVdOaGMI)This election is not about party lines – this is about destructive attacks instate ater state that is supported and led by Romney – to silence the voiceo working people and pull the rug out rom under us. And, this year weare not only voting or the President. We will also be electing a number o U.S. Senators and members o Congress, and there are a number o racesor Governor and public ocials in cities and counties across the nation. Weneed to support and elect those candidates who will see that every workerin this country is protected. We also need to vote on ballot issues that havebeen merely created to urther decimate the rights o working people. We’re too close to Election Day now to sit back and talk about what actions we can take to protect the rights we have ought or, and earned, over decades. We are acing the worst threat to organized labor in decades. But we are thestrongest when we are united, when we put ourselves on the ront lines – ringdoorbells, participate in phone banks, drive voters to the polls and more. Weneed to talk to our brothers and sisters on sets, at conerences, at trade shows,and backstage, wherever members o the IA can be reached and urge them totake part in this coming election, and urge our amilies, riends and neighborsto stand shoulder to shoulder in protecting their voice as working Americans. As important as it is to get to the polls and cast your vote on November6th, this time voting may just not be enough. Get involved! Make a dier-ence! Now is the time to be “all in.”
