Given the COVID pandemic and undeniable sacrifices made by Union members on the frontlines, the Hudson Valley Area Labor Federation has decided to honor our Labor Heroes in a new way this year. To appropriately recognize their important work, rather than give individual awards, we have decided to applaud every Union affiliate, and its members for their individual sacrifices in support of the common good. We know that every worker stepped up when the Hudson Valley needed it the most, and braved the uncertainty of this virus with grace, dedication, and care for our communities. Whether working remotely or directly, these are the people who went above and beyond to provide essential services in every industry. We can never thank them enough.
As your affiliate represents these courageous frontline workers, we cannot wait to honor you at our virtual Labor Heroes ceremony.
