New Jersey State AFL-CIO Salutes Our Nation’s Heroes on Memorial Day


The New Jersey State AFL-CIO joins with our affiliates and community partners this Memorial Day in honoring the servicemen and women who gave their lives for our freedom. These American heroes will always be in our thoughts and prayers.

We also salute men and women who served, or are currently serving, our country. We are so grateful for their sacrifices and bravery.

This holiday weekend – whether you spend time with friends, family, on the job, or enjoying some rest and relaxation – please remember the men and women who make our freedom possible and our country great. Let us honor them with our gratitude, by tending to our veterans’ needs, and ensuring good jobs for returning heroes.

This weekend also marks the unofficial start of summer. We ask that you keep your union brothers and sisters in mind by buying union-made food and beverages whenever possible. CLICK HERE to see a list of union-made barbecue products.

We wish our brothers and sisters a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend, and remind everyone that the strength and solidarity of the labor movement is essential in the continuing fight for good jobs, a balanced economy, and responsible funding of veterans services. Let our soldiers’ courage and sacrifices provide renewed spirit to our vital mission.  

Thank you for all that you do to keep our labor movement strong.
