A labor contract defines the rights and the responsibilities of both labor and management, and the remedies provided to each in the event that one party fails to live up to the obligations stated within the contract. 

"All the money in the world doesn't lay one foot of highway, without the worker."

All government, indeed every human benefit and enjoyment, every virtue, and every prudent act, is founded on compromise and barter.

Edmund Burke

Since 1910, the Teamsters logo has consisted of two horses’ heads, representing the complimentary forces of strength that are inherent in the Teamsters organization. A well-known emblem, most people recognize it but are unsure of the story behind it. The horses’ names are Thunder and Lightning, Thunder is male, Lightning female. Together, they symbolically represent the pillars of the Teamsters organization: quality and power, dignity and justice, strength and morality. The Teamsters are built on pillars that allow us to ensure that our Members’ needs are taken care of, that workers have access to their rights, and that our organization has the staying power to persist through the years.
1936 Edward VIII abdicates. After ruling for less than one year, Edward VIII becomes the first English monarch to voluntarily abdicate the throne. He chose to abdicate after the British government, public, and the Church of England condemned his decision to marry the American divorcée Wallis Warfield Simpson. On the evening of December 11, he gave a radio address in which he explained, “I have found it impossible to carry on the heavy burden of responsibility and to discharge the duties of king, as I would wish to do, without the help and support of the woman I love.” On December 12, his younger brother, the duke of York, was proclaimed King George VI.

I Pledge Allegiance  I (me) Promise to be faithful and true (Promise my loyalty) 

to the flag  to the emblem that stands for and represents

of the United States  all 50 states, each of them individual, and individually represented on the flag

of America  yet formed into a UNION of one Nation. 

and to the Republic  And I also pledge my loyalty to the Government that is itself a Republic, a form of government where the PEOPLE are sovereign, 

for which it stands,  this government also being represented by the Flag to which I promise loyalty

one Nation under God, These 50 individual states are united as a single Republic under the Divine
providence of God, "our most powerful resource" (according to the words of President Eisenhower) 

Indivisible, and can not be separated. (This part of the original version of the pledge was written just 30 years after the beginning of the Civil War and demonstrates the unity sought in the years after that divisive period in our history) 

with Liberty The people of this Nation being afforded the freedom to pursue "life, liberty, and happiness", 

and Justice  And each person entitled to be treated justly, fairly, and according to proper law and principle, 

for All.  And these principles afforded to EVERY AMERICAN, regardless of race, religion, color, creed, or any other criteria. Just as the flag represents 50 individual states that can not be divided or separated, this Nation represents millions of people who can not be separated or divided.
