Thank you public service workers!

Happy Tax Day! Today, we celebrate the critical role that taxes play in funding the public services that our communities rely on and our workers need to continue to deliver these services. As public service workers, we understand firsthand the importance of well-funded public services in ensuring that our coworkers, loved ones, and communities thrive. 

We want to express our deepest appreciation and gratitude to each and every one of you for your unwavering commitment to putting our coworkers, loved ones, and communities first. Your dedication to public safety, public health, and the betterment of our communities is truly commendable, and it is an honor to work alongside such dedicated individuals and represent you in the workplace. 

As a union, we believe in advocating for transformational tax reform that ensures the wealthy and large profitable corporations pay their fair share of taxes. We recognize that everything we do, from providing quality education and healthcare to maintaining our roads and infrastructure, to public safety and our courts, to our clerical workers and social workers, is all made possible by tax revenue. We must work together to ensure that our tax system is fair and equitable, and that wealthy and large corporations pay their fair share so that we can fully fund public services and invest in our shared future.

Our steadfast commitment to protecting and improving public services and public service workers is unwavering. We know that our communities thrive when we have well-funded public services that meet the needs of all individuals, regardless of their background or socioeconomic status. We are proud to work in public service and to be part of the solution in building a better future for our communities.

On this Tax Day, let us reflect on the important work that we do every single day to ensure that our communities live dignified and thriving lives. Your hard work, dedication, and unwavering commitment to public service are truly appreciated and make a positive impact on the lives of countless individuals, many of whom you may never meet or see in person, and many of whom whose lives are saved through your work.

Thank you for your continued efforts in protecting and improving public services, and for your steadfast commitment to our union's values. Together, we will continue to advocate for fair tax policies and work towards a better future for all.
