What is International Workers' Day?

While this credit union may be the only financial institution in the U.S. to close for May Day, we’re not alone. Thousands of credit unions around the world will be closed for May Day, and for good reason. Credit Unions are part of the movement to empower ordinary people. It is this movement that May Day celebrates.

On May 1, 1886, hundreds of thousands of American workers went on strike as part of a movement to win the eight-hour day. The May Day movement was an attempt by common people to gain some control over their lives and work. It took years of struggle before U.S. workers eventually won the eight-hour day for all; when we did, it set a standard for the whole world. May Day is celebrated throughout the world, but here in its birthplace, it has been a lost holiday.
