Mr. Peter J. McGuire

A Labor Day Message from EST Banks

On behalf of the Florida Carpenters Regional Council staff, I wish all of our members and employers and their families a happy and safe Labor Day holiday.

We are fortunate to have so many talented men and women working in the field and offices of our Council. Labor Day is an excellent time to thank each and every one of you for your hard work and dedication all year long.

Did you know that the UBC and its first leader, Peter J. McGuire, are directly responsible for establishing Labor Day as a federal holiday? Thatís just one unique aspect of our great Union. At some point during this Labor Day weekend, please stop and take a look through our great Unionís history and heritage section. Itís in the member's section of our website, or†click here to check it out.

Happy Labor Day!

Yours in Solidarity,

James F. Banks, Jr., EST, FLCRC
