When: Monday, Sep 6, 2021, (All day)

You know that many anti-Labor messages wrongly portray Union members as unproductive and overpaid. But the truth is (as JFK commented) that Unions have “raised wages, shortened hours . . . and brought justice and democracy to the shop floor.” As you know, the very concept of weekends, 8-hour workdays, 40-hour weeks, and overtime are the fruits of Labor Unions. To help educate the public about the role of Unions in building America’s middle class, we’ve had the privilege of organizing Erie’s Labor Day Parade since 2015.

Without the hardworking members/leaders of organized labor, the revival of the Labor Day Parade in Erie would NEVER have happened. THANK YOU so much for helping us to organize, publicize and fund this incredible community event.
Due to a sudden medical situation, it is impossible for Rosann to continue organizing the 2021 NWPA ALF LABOR DAY PARADE. No one is more heartbroken with this decision than her, but she needs to step back and make her health her priority. We hope you understand. Next week, we’ll mail back your generous donation checks.

Rosann offered to put together a parade timeline and planning checklist for the Labor Day Parade and would be delighted to share it with any group that would like to host the Labor Day Parade this year.

GREAT NEWS, IBEW 56 will be hosting the 2021 Erie Labor Day Parade! We have shared information with them and ask everyone to show them the support and participation we have enjoyed. They will be sending out their applications shortly. Terry Baker and Jim Nuber will be the coordinators and need people to serve on a Parade Committee. You can reach Jim at his office at 814-825-5505, cell 814-882-5656, email; [email protected], or Terry Baker at his cell at 814-860-0297.

This year’s theme for designing your floats is “Working Champions” which was submitted by Zachary Gibson.

... Members of LABOR in other CLCs are holding/attending Labor Day Events;
The MERCER CLC is asking all of LABOR to join them for the LABOR DAY PARADE in Hermitage, PA.
Greater Westmoreland CLC is working on the Labor United Celebration, a two-day event in the Parks, and invites everyone to join them.
and there is always the Pittsburgh Labor Day Parade which is hosted by the Allegheny Central Labor Council located just south of our jurisdiction.
We hope you make plans to attend one or more of these events!
