The labor day holiday is a time set aside to honor the american labor movement and the power of collective action by laborers.

Our cash matlock sat down with representatives from a columbus labor union and has more on what this day represents.

Most people associate today with a three day weekend, or maybe the last chance for a summer barbeque.

...and they should... folks at the local i-u-e-c- w-a chapter say the holiday can be spent however the working class sees fit.

Jim green is the vice president of the i-u-e-c-w-a local eighty- three seven seventy... it's a labor union formed to represent civilian workers at the columbus air-force base.

"as opposed to a lot of base where you have active military members working working on the aircraft, these members out here are all civilians.

A good majority of them, or a good percentage of them, are retired military or veterans, but they are all civilians."

He says the labor day holiday is very important to america's working class.

"to me so many of the thing you use, i mean everything you buy in the store or online or whatever is made by someone.

You look around and everything we've got was made by somebody, and it's their job to make it."

His primary job at the union is to make sure employees are well represented and their needs met.

"provides support for th members.

It provides backing and with a collective bargaining agreement that you negotiate with your company.

You set forth a standard as far as your wages and benefits.

Everything from your insurance to holidays, your time off, everything is negotiated, and everything is put into a collective bargaining agreement.

The company is bound by the law to follow this agreement."

"the more members you have the higher the percentage of the employees that are in the union, the stronger the union is."

Green says there are several different scenarios in which a labor union supports workers.

"if you've got a language i your collective bargaining agreement regarding attendance, and that language says after you have three unexcused absences you get a letter of reprimand, then you have a person that gets three unexcused absences and the company terminates them, well they didn't follow the collective bargaining agreement.

At that point, the union would step in, and you would file a grievance and go through the proper procedures to make sure that employee was treated in accordance with the bargaining agreement."

Green says many people don't realize that labor unions were the driving force behind the holiday.

"they started the movement t recognize labor day as a holiday, and it's a day we set aside to recognize the working force of america."

Stay connected with @wcbiweather on facebook, twitter, and instagram while many people are enjoying a day off this labor day holiday, for others, it is a regular work day.

And for a group of future law enforcement officers, labor day was another day to train hard as they prepare for life behind the badge.

Wcbi's allie martin reports.

This labor day began like any other day for class b 63 at tupelo's north mississippi law enforcement training center.

Nats but that doesn't mean anything is routine, and that's the mindset director dean bearden wants to instill in cadets.

"i don't even like the word routine, in law enforcement, they have to understand, that we have nothing routine.

You can stop the same type of violator, four different times and have four different scenarios involved with it."

The schedule for labor day also included pt nats classroom time learning about the use of radar and other methods to determine a vehicle's speed.

Nats and training with tasers nats whatever the subject, bearden emphasizes a vital character trait for any successful, long term law officer.

"everything they do in thei careers will be based upon their integrity level, how much integrity do they have.

Ethics is something we focus on here, we make sure cadets have every tool available to them and when we talk about integrity, we talk about ethics.

" standup bridge this is the fifth week for class b 63, cadets have seven more weeks to go and while they know they still have topics like firearms and driving ahead of them, cadets also say they never know what to expect on a daily basis."

"sir it is very difficult, i a former military and sir, it's been way more difficult than any military traing i've been in sir.

Way more physical activity, sir, lot of running, sir, lot more pushups."

"been a very challengin experience, but at same time, rewarding, i wouldn't say we have any idea of what is actually coming at us everyday, but we are getting to the point where we are can understand it and take on any situation."

Cadets did get a surprise during their labor day lunch hour, grilled hamburgers, fries and baked beans, a holiday treat while they are training hard.

Allie martin, wcbi news class b 63 began with 27 cadets and is now at 14.

Cadets will graduate in late october.

Stinger tommy stevens gets off to a great start for mississippi state....doing something that hasn't been done in three seasons as a bulldogs quarterback!

Tommy stevens showing off why he won the starting job in week one... the grad transfer leading the bulldogs to a 38-point performance.... stevens' completion percentage of 67 percent was the highest for a msu qb who attempted at least 30 passes since november of 2016....when nick fitzgerald did it against arkansas... head coach joe moorhead says he liked what he saw from stevens in his first true college start "the thing that i like, he wa incredibly decisive.

There were very few times where he dropped back and didn't look like he knew where to go with the ball.

He was working his progressions, reading the coverage and doing a great job of diagnosing and getting the ball out of his hands quickly.

It was great to see, particularly on third down where we struggled a bit last year.

Medium plus in the passing game, be able to get the ball out quickly and be able to extend drives.

I thought on top of him being efficient and accurate, and us still being able to push the ball downfield, we were able to keep the sticks moving on third down as well."

Head coach joe moorhead also confirming today, junior quarterback keytaon thompson has returned the team... moorhead says after weighing his options in the transfer portal, thompson decided it was best to return to mississippi state thompson is listed as the number 2 quarterback on the bulldogs depth chart heading into week 2 for ole miss....the questions all offseason was about the defense....but in week one, the defense kept the rebels in the game, while the offense struggled the rebels were held below 200 yards of offense....going 1 for 10 on third down, and qb matt corral under constant pressure..

Head coach matt luke says everyone will have to improve, and rally around the freshman qb "i think there's some things w can do to help him.

The o-line can help him.

I think the receivers can help him.

I don't think you can put it all on matt.

I think it's coaching.

Everybody working together to find a way to get it done.

Get the ball out a little quicker on some things.

If we want to throw it down the field, we have to hold up in protection."

"he's a competitive guy.

H knew right away when things weren't going well and what was happening to them.

He wasn't like what's happening which is part of the deal.

He knew what was going on and how they were playing us.

I think he's played a little bit but saturday was his first start.

I think matt will continue to get better.

I have a lot of confidence in him and he'll play well."
