While it’s difficult to put into words, all the emotions being felt by Americans at this moment, we are extremely proud of the efforts put forth by our union brothers and sisters across our state and nation to champion working family values. We are fortunate to work with each and every one of you, and we look forward to emerging from this election stronger and more united than ever before. No matter who is in the White House, labor’s mission remains the same: to uplift all working families and ensure that each successive generation is afforded opportunities greater than those of the previous generation.
We congratulate Secretary Clinton on a hard fought campaign and thank her for an unwavering commitment to the people of this nation. Her contributions as an activist, elected official, and role model for women have undoubtedly changed our nation for the better and inspired generations of Americans to realize their dreams. Despite falling short in our goal to elect Secretary Clinton, we cannot relent in our fight to advance workers’ rights, civil rights, and women’s rights as well as invest in our future, and achieve an economy that works for all.
Once again, thank you for all you have done and will continue to do. As Secretary Clinton so eloquently put it, "Never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it."
