Bernie Sanders to headline 2018 Labor Day Breakfast

(August 8th, 2018 – Hooksett, NH) New Hampshire AFL-CIO President Glenn Brackett announced today that long-time friend of the Granite State labor community Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will serve as the keynote speaker at the AFL-CIO’s annual Labor Day Breakfast. The breakfast is to be held at St. George Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Manchester on Monday, September 3rd at 9:00am.

“Sen. Sanders’s advocacy and passion in his support of working families are American values whose time have come” Brackett said, adding “Bernie Sanders’s leadership sharpens the focus on the national conversation towards issues that affect every worker, in every community in this country.”

Sen. Sanders has recognized the importance of the AFL-CIO NH Labor Day Breakfast by attending and speaking at this event a number of times. Attracting over 300 of the most active and influential advocates for workers in the state, the NH AFL-CIO’s Labor Day Breakfast represents the traditional kickoff of the campaign season and an opportunity for Labor to demonstrate support for pro-worker candidates in the fall elections.

Sanders, first elected to Congress in 1990 after serving as Burlington’s mayor, has been an advocate for workers’ rights in Washington and earned a lifetime AFL-CIO rating of 99%. He has been a dependable presence in the Granite State and won New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary with 61% in 2016.

“We are excited that Senator Sanders will help to make our Labor Day Breakfast a memorable event,” Brackett said.
