By Doug Cunningham
On Veteran’s Day the Union veterans Council wants you to know that among the rights veterans have fought and died for are collective bargaining labor rights. Here are some pro-union veterans speaking in a Union veteran’s Council video.
[Union Veterans Council Members]: “Sam Phipps. I served in the United States Army as an infantryman. Fought in Afghanistan 2011-2012. I’m a proud union member of Local 562. getting into Local 562 has given me a chance at a good life, being able to support not only myself but more importantly ,my family.
Sabrina Harris. U.S. Army – biological and chemical warfare. A proud member of AFGE Local 96. The union has given me stability in my life.
Jason Barker, United States Army. Served in Iraq. Now a member of IFF Local 73, St. Louis firefighters. Bein’ a firefighter and a union member you’ll experience the same brotherhood as you do in the military.
Joe Clarkson. I’m a member of AFGE Local 96. I served in Iraq and Kosovo in the U.S. Army reserve. To me the union means brotherhood. And when I think of the brotherhood, I think of the phrase on the union hall wall – United we bargain, divided we beg.”
