United Food and Commercial Workers International President Marc Perrone joined the IAM’s 39th Grand Lodge Convention delegates to speak about the importance to communicate the Labor Day message of solidarity and unity every day of the year.
“We have an extraordinary opportunity, and that opportunity is that with the internet and a number of different media outlets and social media we have the ability to communicate with a much wider range of people than we have in the past,” said Perrone.
The UFCW President praised the work of IAM workers and their dedication to the products they make.
“It is the best made motorcycle in the world. I absolutely love to have the opportunity to ride my bike,” said Perrone. “I don’t think there is anything more freeing than that, and to know that your members made it, it’s just that much more special to me.”
