Upstate 1199ers Celebrate Labor Day

October 20, 2023

Labor Day

On September 4, members from Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse came together in marches across New York State in honor of Labor

Day. Percy Jackson, an 1199 Del- egate in the Food and Nutrition Department at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, says the day means a lot to him because of his se- cure employment and healthcare.

Strong Transport Assistant Charles Lentine, meanwhile, says Labor Day represents, “1199 and all the hard work our members put in every year.”
