Your union is proud to celebrate Labour Day on September 5, 2016 and is inviting you, your family and friends to join us in standing up for fairness, respect and dignity for all workers.
UFCW Canada Local 1006A members, activists, staff and officers will be participating in the annual Labour Day parade on September 5, 2016 in downtown Toronto.
First observed in 1872 with the Toronto printers’ strike, Labour Day is now marked in communities across Canada.
Labour Day is an opportunity for us to celebrate and reaffirm our commitment to fighting for fairness, social justice and equality for all. It is also a time to reflect on the labour movement’s many achievements, which include leading the way in advocating for universal health care, vacations, sick days, maternity leave, 8-hour workdays, pensions, health and safety standards at workplaces and much more.Today as in the past, unions continue to be at the forefront of fighting for a fairer and more just society, whether it be advocating for progressive childcare policies for families, lower tuition rates for students, or helping workers win rights in the workplace.
