The First Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The Central Labor Union held its second Labor Day holiday just a year later, on September 5, 1883.

By 1894, 23 more states had adopted the holiday, and on June 28, 1894, President Grover Cleveland signed a law making the first Monday in September of each year a national holiday.

To this day we still celebrate this holiday and we pay tribute  to the creator of so much of the nation’s strength, freedom, and leadership – the American worker.

Many of our members in our local shops enjoyed spending time with their co-workers at picnic, parades and rallys.
