Amalgamated Transit Union Local 689
" * We hold it as a sacred principle that trade union men and women, above all others, shall set a good example as good and faithful workers, performing their duties to their employer with honor to themselves as well as to their organization. * We hold a reduction of hours for a day's work increases the intelligence and happiness of the laborer and also increases the demands for labor and the price of day's work. * We hold a liberal education of the young to be preeminent preparation for life's social industrial work, and that the principles and purposes of organized labor demand free and compulsory education. * We have resolved to encourage and stimulate our members to take a lively interest in the civil affairs of their country in order that they can vote intelligently and effectively for the interests of the working people thereby advancing the cause of Organized Labor."
