President’s Day is a time to honor the leaders who have shaped our nation’s history. Fifty years ago, on January 17, 1962, Federal employees first obtained the right to engage in collective bargaining through labor organizations when President John F. Kennedy’s support for unions led to significant progress in workers’ rights. From George Washington’s leadership during the Revolutionary War to Abraham Lincoln’s commitment to emancipation, John F. Kennedy’s advocacy for unions, and Franklin D. Roosevelt’s historic support for workers’ rights, presidents have played a crucial role in advancing social and economic justice. George Washington helped to win our liberty and give us a democracy strong enough to endure through the centuries and flexible enough to survive the fresh challenges that face each generation of Americans. Abraham Lincoln’s steadfast dedication to emancipation further solidified the nation’s commitment to equality and justice. As we celebrate this holiday, we also recognize the vital role of unions in advocating for fair wages, safe working conditions, and collective bargaining rights. Together, we continue to uphold the values of solidarity and progress championed by past presidents and labor leaders alike.
This Martin Luther King Day, we pay tribute to a leader who embraced the positive impact of unions, fair collective bargaining, and the fight for civil rights. Inspired by his vision and unwavering commitment, let’s strengthen our resolve to promote unity, justice, and public service.
