Each June marks another year of Pride for the LGBTQ+ community. Since 1970, Pride Month has commemorated the anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising and has since developed into a 30-day celebration, including parades, events, concerts, and memorials. We celebrate Pride as a reminder of those who have advocated for LGBTQ+ rights from early on in the movement and continue their legacy.
Plasterers Local 534 is proud to have a membership that encourages and supports equality and inclusivity within our union and communities. As union members, we enjoy competitive and uniform wages and benefits for all, regardless of sexual orientation. Of particular importance to our LGBTQ+ Brothers and Sisters are:
- Comprehensive and inclusive healthcare benefits.
- Undivided support of workplace discrimination laws.
While we do as much as possible to uplift and protect our LGBTQ+ Brothers and Sisters, all members must be vigilant of workplace discrimination toward any community member. Be sure to report any comments or harassment to the union hall. Lastly, we wish our LGBTQ+ Brothers and Sisters a very happy Pride Month!
