Union Members Tweet in Support of Labor and Screen Actors Guild
This Labor Day, we can all do our part to help send a positive message about the value of unions – and we’re encouraging you to join other union members in doing so through Twitter. Simply send a Tweet over Labor Day weekend with the hash tag #unionmember to showcase the strength, solidarity and diversity of our unions. If you would like to use your Tweet to show your support for SAG, also include the hash tag #SAGmember.
Labor Day is a celebration of the American worker and a day to honor the labor movement. This Twitter campaign is an easy way to show you’re proud to be a union member. Your followers and supporters on Twitter will ReTweet your message to maximize visibility of the effort.
The Tweet-A-Thon has been organized by American Rights at Work. SAG members will also be joined by our colleagues at AFTRA and AEA, as well as members of the Major League Baseball Players Association. Feel free to send multiple tweets honoring all of your unions.
We’ve made this easy. Here are sample suggested tweets to send through your Twitter account on Labor Day. All are under 140 characters. Of course, you should feel free to personalize your tweets with your own thoughts about Labor Day and unions.
Please use #unionmember in each tweet so we know you’re participating! If you have room, feel free to include the short URL of the tweet-a-thon’s website, which is http://umem.us.
Thank you in advance for participating and have a happy and safe Labor Day.
