Workers are the foundation of a good structure whether they are in public agencies or private businesses. For this reason, workers should be treated with respect and fairness in the workplace. This Labor Day weekend, honor our workers for their time and dedication in helping create an efficient economy. As a labor union, GFT will continue to protect workersâ€™ rights and advocate for a better quality of life for working families. “The great challenge and the great opportunity posed by today’s worrisome economic crisis are to find a new synthesis between the common good and the market, between capital and labor. And in this regard, union organizations can make a significant contributionâ€¦Workers are facing particular risks in the current economic crisis, and unions must be part of the solutionâ€ – Pope Benedict XVI.
