Posted Nov. 2, 2022 by

As fall festivities wind down and the holiday season approaches, November is often a time to reflect on what makes us thankful. From family and friends to a roof over our heads and comfort in our lives, so many people use the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving as a reminder to give thanks for all that is a blessing in our lives and to bring about kindness and goodwill to others.

For so many, having a union voice is definitely something for which they are thankful. "We spend so much of our time working, anything that improves that part of our lives is worth our gratitude," says OCSEA Vice President Rocky Jolly. "I'm thankful for being a member of a union which made all the goodness in my life possible," he says. And, as a union activist, brother Jolly is thankful that he's been able to help others do the same.
