“TVA Today”

Labor Day, a federal holiday, is celebrated on the first Monday in September to honor and recognize the American labor movement and the works and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States.

In the photos below, we take a look at our working men and women past and present who contributed to the success of the Valley.
