WILMINGTON, Calif.—The Building Trades will join thousands of union members for a fun and festive Labor Day event on Monday, Sept. 4: the 44th annual Labor Day Parade, picnic and rally.
Each year, Building Trades unions march with banners, floats and family members out in force in this Los Angeles neighborhood near the Port of LA.
Assembly starts at 8 am at Broad and E Streets, with the short parade kicking off at 10. Marchers walk down Avalon Boulevard to Banning Park, where they enjoy barbecue, hot dogs, and corn on the cob. Families can hear music by live bands. About three dozen booths offer information on union-oriented services and products for working families.
It’s a great opportunity to learn about Building Trades jobs and apprenticeship.
“Labor Day brings us together as workers,” said Council Executive Secretary Chris Hannan. “This is California’s biggest Labor Day parade, and it’s a great chance for anyone interested in unions to find out more about what we offer—lifelong careers with good benefits and retirement.”
The event is free and open to all. For more information please go to:
