Halifax – September 12, 2017 – UFCW Canada activists were out in full force at Labour Day events across the Atlantic provinces, gathering with family members and community allies at a number of marches, picnics, and parades to honour the past achievements of workers and to celebrate Canada’s labour movement.

In Atlantic Canada, UFCW Canada activists and family members marked the celebration at a number of community events, including Labour Day parades and picnics in Halifax, St. John's, Charlottetown, Moncton and Fredericton.

"As trade unionists, Labour Day is a chance to not only celebrate the hard-won gains of unions, but also demonstrate our strength and solidarity by gathering with friends, family, and allies to honour our collective achievements,” says UFCW Canada National President Paul Meinema.

“It is a day for hope, love, and optimism, and an appropriate time for us to recommit to building a fairer Canada with laws, policies, and programs that benefit all workers."
