Sisters and Brothers:
This year, more than ever, we need our union brothers and sisters, retirees, and union family members to come out and join other unions in celebration of Labor Day:
Date: Monday, September 4, 2017
Location: Sheet Metal Workers’ Local 19 Union Hall, 1301 S. Columbus Blvd. (at Washington Avenue)
Time: 8:30 a.m. meet with AFSCME District Council 47, at 9:15 a.m. is the Pre-Parade Kickoff Rally, and at 10 a.m. we march to Penns Landing for family fun activities. The event ends at 2 p.m.
This Labor Day and every day unions fight for real freedoms for working people:
- The ability to retire with dignity
- The time off to care for family
- The chance to earn a decent living
- The opportunity to see our children learning
When working people have the freedom to join strong unions and negotiate a fair return for their work, they win the power and voice they need to level the economic and political playing field. We encourage you to join us. See you there!
Candido Silva, Jr., Organizer and PEOPLE Outreach Coordinator
