Local 793’s officers, executive board and staff wish you and your families a Happy Labour Day.

Labour Day is a special holiday for all unions including Local 793. Labour Day honours the struggles that workers have endured in order to repeal anti-union laws and support workers’ right to unionize. These successful efforts have led to workers gaining more rights such as: fair wages, improved terms and conditions of employment and better workplace safety rules.

As we are unable to celebrate and march in the Labour Day parades together due to COVID-19, we encourage you to celebrate with your loved ones and friends in a safe manner. As union members, we know well the importance of unity and how it gives us strength to overcome all obstacles including the challenges caused by COVID-19.

HAPPY LABOUR DAY!
