BOSTON (AP) - President Barack Obama will be coming to Boston for the annual Greater Boston Labor Council’s Labor Day breakfast on Monday.

The White House announced Obama’s plans Tuesday.

Rich Rogers, executive secretary-treasurer of the Greater Boston Labor Council, said the group is honored Obama will join its members “to celebrate a labor movement that is needed now more than ever.”

Rogers said Massachusetts workers have several legislative victories to celebrate this year, including earned sick time, a minimum wage increase and a domestic workers bill of rights.

The council is the regional arm of the AFL-CIO and includes 161 local unions representing about 90,000 members in 24 communities in the Boston area.
