I come from a union family. Both of my parents worked as unionized factory workers for over three decades each. I vividly remember my mother participating in a picket line when I was younger. This encouraged me to continue the tradition as a member and employee of Working America, the AFL-CIO’s community affiliate and now as a member of ASEA Local 52. For me, being both a beneficiary of collective bargaining and a participant in union activities is to embody what is a quintessentially American notion of social solidarity or ‘we’re all in this together.’
