Fire up the grill for Memorial Day!

Fire up the grill for Memorial Day and all summer long! On Memorial Day, we remember the individuals who gave their lives defending our country and recognize the Veterans and Heroes who are in service today. We salute all of those courageous men and women who have defended our country so that we may enjoy the rights and privileges we have every day in the U.S. Programs like organized labor’s Helmets to Hardhats help connect men and women from the armed forces with building and construction careers.

Since Memorial Day is also the unofficial kickoff of summer, plenty of people will be firing up the grill and enjoying the warm weather. Remember to use union-made supplies on Memorial Day and all summer long.
