TYR Labour Day Parade Notice 2018
TORONTO & YORK REGION LABOUR COUNCIL
LABOUR DAY – SEPT 3
Its’ time for our labour family to gather and celebrate! Its’ time to march for good jobs, justice and fairness for all. This year, the Labour Day parade is going to look a little different in destination – in solidarity with our sisters and brothers in IATSE Local58 who have been locked out since July, the parade destination will be Lamport Stadium in Liberty Village. The parade will start at 9:30am sharp, from Queen St & University Avenue and march to Lamport Stadium after greeting the IATSE Local58 picket on Dufferin Street at Liberty.
There will be much to look forward to at the Stadium: music, children’s activities, food trucks and a beer tent for those who are thirsty. Thanks to our affiliates stepping up to make this a fabulous experience for our labour families. The parade will have a special lead banner of $15 and Fairness, recognising the need to protect our hard won achievement in minimum wage, scheduling rights, right to organize and join a union and much more in Bill 148. Bring your family and friends to join the largest Labour Day parade in Canada!
