AFL-CIO Launches Labor Day Ad Buy Honoring America’s Workers

Today, the AFL-CIO announced a national cable television ad buy that will run through Labor Day. The ad shows how America’s workers have answered the call to lead in the face of a failed federal government response.

“When our leaders played politics in a crisis and left our communities out to dry—America’s workers led. Keeping America running, taking care of fellow Americans, delivering food relief, fighting for people’s rights and holding our government accountable.”

America faces crises on three critical fronts: a public health pandemic, an economic free fall and long-standing structural racism. As America’s labor movement, we must urgently address all three with precision and purpose because they cannot be fixed separately.

“Nothing will interrupt our work or interfere with our promise to uplift the hopes and aspirations of working people,” said AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. “Together, we will continue to pursue our movement’s mission of social, racial and economic justice, especially as America enters the homestretch of this election.”
