Happy Labor Day Brothers and Sisters! 

On this special day, we salute your dedication, hard work, and unwavering commitment to building the world around us. Your tireless efforts shape cities and construct the foundations of progress.

From stringing up the first piece of tape on the drywall to the final paint touch-ups, your craftsmanship and skill transform blueprints into reality. Your persistence in the face of challenges, your teamwork under pressure, and your ability to turn dreams into structures inspire us all.

As we celebrate Labor Day, let’s take a moment to recognize the sweat, the grit, and the determination you all pour into every project. 

May your day be filled with well-deserved rest, appreciation, and the satisfaction of knowing that your hard work shapes a better world for everyone. Happy Labor Day, Local 3 members! Here’s to you and the remarkable structures you bring to life. 

Stay safe and enjoy your well-deserved day off! 


¡Feliz Día del Trabajo hermanos y hermanas!

En este día especial, saludamos su dedicación, arduo trabajo y compromiso inquebrantable para construir el mundo que nos rodea. Tus esfuerzos incansables dan forma a las ciudades y construyen las bases del progreso.

Tu perseverancia ante los desafíos, tu trabajo en equipo bajo presión y tu capacidad para convertir los sueños en estructuras nos inspiran a todos.

Mientras celebramos el Día del Trabajo, tomemos un momento para reconocer el sudor, el valor y la determinación que todos ponen en cada proyecto.
