The holiday season is upon us and the new year is fast approaching.
Many words and images have passed my way, but none captured the spirit of our union and the meaning of the holidays like this video featuring Bruce Cannon, a New York City Parks and Recreation employee and AFSCME Local 299 member:
Like Bruce says in the video, the holidays are about giving -- and not just material things.
At Council 4, we feel blessed and proud to represent our members on the job and in our communities. We believe every worker, every retiree should enjoy a decent standard of living that that includes quality time with family and friends.
In that spirit, we wish you the happiest of holidays.
Sal Luciano, Executive Director
