Monday, September 4

We are pleased to inform you that Unifor will be participating in the 2023 Toronto Labour Day Parade with the rest of our labour movement family.

We will assemble at Nathan Phillips Square beginning at 7:30 a.m. on September 4. Those volunteering may be required to arrive earlier. Prior to the parade, Unifor will have entertainment, speeches, and local tables set up in the square for T-shirt and CNE wristband pick-up. We will then march in the Labour Day Parade finishing at the CNE grounds.

Wristbands provided will allow admission only to the CNE at the end of the parade route.  Please indicate on the form attached how many wristbands your local requires.

This Labour Day is particularly significant as Unifor will mark our union’s 10th anniversary. The Labour Day Planning Committee have selected this year’s shirt, the Unifor logo will be printed on the front of the shirt, and the back will feature a special anniversary logo which will be unveiled at Canadian Council.

Local Unions are asked to order the long sleeve T-shirts directly from the supplier at the following link:

The National Union and each Regional Council will together be providing a combined total subsidy of $10/per shirt, which will be applied at the time of purchase, reducing the cost to $20/ per shirt.

In order to receive T-shirts in time for Labour Day, please make note that the deadline to place orders is July 28, 2023.

Share information on the parade by placing posters in your union halls and workplaces.

If you would like printed copies of the Labour Day Posters mailed to your local, please send the following information to @email with Subject Line: Labour Day Posters

  • Local Union
  • Number of Posters Required
  • Mailing Address
  • Contact Person and Phone Number

If you plan to distribute electronically, a fillable PDF version of the poster is also attached.
