Labour Day 2020

September 7, 2020 - 12:00 AM

Unifor is preparing to celebrate Labour Day 2020! Along with recognizing the historical importance of Labour Day as a celebration of all workers, the day is also significant for our union.

This year’s theme is Defending and Rebuilding and we we’re looking forward to joining our members across Canada to commemorate this important day for working people throughout the country.

Although we may be apart as we continue to cope with COVID-19, that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate together! We will be hosting virtual events on Labour Day, including a Facebook rally.

In the spirit of celebration and unity, all locals are invited to order a one-of-a-kind t-shirt – you can order online here. A portion of the proceeds from shirt sales will be donated to a variety of important charities and causes across Canada.

The union will also be producing shareables and a Facebook profile picture frame for members to use on the day of. Whether your local is hosting or participating in a virtual event, or just celebrating with family, Labour Day is an opportunity to show union pride. Please share photos and videos of local and online actions and of individual members wearing our union’s t-shirts to social media platforms using the hashtag #uniforlabourday.
