Hi Philip,

You can call a custom label likes below in your code
String test = Label.<custom label name>;

for example:
String test = Label.ok;

Hi Philip,

Please follow below code:
public class UpdateContactAddresses implements
    Database.Batchable<sObject>, Database.Stateful {
    // instance member to retain state across transactions
    public Integer recordsProcessed = 0;
    public Database.QueryLocator start(Database.BatchableContext bc) {
        return Database.getQueryLocator(
            'SELECT ID, BillingStreet, BillingCity, BillingState, ' +
            'BillingPostalCode, (SELECT ID, MailingStreet, MailingCity, ' +
            'MailingState, MailingPostalCode FROM Contacts) FROM Account ' +
            'Where BillingCountry = \'USA\''
    public void execute(Database.BatchableContext bc, List<Account> scope){
        // process each batch of records
        List<Contact> contacts = new List<Contact>();
        for (Account account : scope) {
            for (Contact contact : account.contacts) {
                contact.MailingStreet = account.BillingStreet;
                contact.MailingCity = account.BillingCity;
                contact.MailingState = account.BillingState;
                contact.MailingPostalCode = account.BillingPostalCode;
                // add contact to list to be updated
                // increment the instance member counter
                recordsProcessed = recordsProcessed + 1;
