Brothers and Sisters, As we remember Martin Luther King, Jr. recall that he stood tall for all Union working men and women, acknowledging the dignity and respect that being a Union Member adds to the human condition:
"Power properly understood is nothing but the ability to achieve purpose. It is the strength required to bring about social, political, and economic change. Walter Reuther defined power one day. He said, 'Power is the ability of a labor union like the U.A.W. to make the most powerful corporation in the world, General Motors, say 'Yes' when it wants to say 'No.' That's power.' " - Martin Luther King, Jr.
