Biden Administration Continues to Praise Unions

National Postal Mail Handlers Union President Paul V. Hogrogian and other union presidents and leaders met with President Joseph R. Biden, Secretary of Labor and LiUNA member Marty Walsh, and AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler, on Wednesday, September 8, in honor of Labor Day. In his remarks, President Biden spoke to all the contributions that the labor community has made not only during the COVID-19 pandemic, but also how the labor movement was and is instrumental in the development of the middle class and building the national economy. 

“We’ve fundamentally transformed how we live and how we work in this country, and the reason we have is because of victories from labor,” President Biden commented. “When unions win, workers across the board win. That’s a fact.” 

Secretary Walsh stated, “It’s never been more clear [that] our economy, our community, our very own lives depend on working people…. Our country will never and must never forget that and what essential workers have done in the last eighteen months.” 

These words should resonate with NPMHU members as they have seen this dedication and the benefits of the labor movement firsthand. The NPMHU is grateful to see an Administration that is proud to side with labor organizations, and we look forward to continuing to work with President Biden and Secretary Walsh.
