Our Mission Statement
We organize to elevate our trade and craft from the degradation of low wages and long hours. We organize to obtain the full remuneration for the labor we perform... We organize to rescue ourselves and class from proverty and dependence, the misery and uncertainty that are clouding our lives and crushing our aspirations. We organize to assist each other to secure employment, for mutual aid in case of sickness or disability, to protect each other's rights and redress our wrongs, and to obtain adequate legislation that will secure our wages from the unscrupulous sharks who infest our trade.
