In a brief Labor Day message, longtime union member Michael Moore (currently on strike with his fellow writers and actors) salutes the work that you all do, offers his support for the autoworkers who may go on strike in September, and thanks Turner Classic Movies, a channel on everyone’s basic cable, for having a special prime time Labor Day double feature on Monday night: At 8pm ET Barbara Kopple’s Oscar-winning “Harlan County, USA”, and at 10pm ET, his very first film from 1989, “Roger & Me”. 

We hope you get to watch both of these and let your friends and family know about them. Both documentaries have been selected by the Library of Congress’ National Film Preservation Board as groundbreaking films that the Library and Congress will protect for future generations. 

Solidarity forever!
