The Power of Unity

This week we're celebrating our union's story of coming together, working together, fighting together for what we all want -- a better life for all. It hasn't always been easy, but our unity kept us together. We learned to stick it out when times got tough, to pull together when too many would like to see us fall apart. Watch and share the 2017 convention keynote video to see how the power of unity helped us build a great union and great nations.

Through it all -- the good times and the bad times -- one thing has been proven over and over: we are stronger together.
