Service + Solidarity Spotlight: IUPAT Celebrates Its Proud History While Looking Toward the Future
Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.
2021 was a year unlike any other, and together, the unions that make up the AFL-CIO showed our strength and resolve to carry on the work we do despite enormous challenges. On New Year’s Eve, the Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT) released a new video, reflecting on the union’s history and spreading hope for the future. “Let us take a moment to appreciate that, despite overwhelming odds, our international union is still standing strong after another year, the 134th year of our proud existence,” the union posted on Facebook. “In 2022, let’s commit ourselves like never before to building IUPAT power, strength for our trades, and towards creating a labor movement future generations can take great pride in as unionists just like all of us are today.”
