On Thursday, August 27th, workers at the Westland Public Library will vote on whether or not to affiliate with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME). What better way to celebrate Labor Day than with newly won union representation. In Sweden almost nine in ten workers have a union. Unions represent professors, engineers, nurses, doctors, librarians, pilots. It works really well. If you want a voice in your work life - if you want dignity and respect on the job - if you want to be treated fairly, and you want the same for your colleagues - then you want a union. Good luck!
