Labour Day – Port Elgin Retirees – 2019
Unifor Delegates and guests from all across Canada attended the annual National Retired workers council in Port Elgin, Ontario from September 1st through to the 6th. On the Monday everyone were guests of the Grey Bruce Labour Council and marched in the annual Labour Day parade. There was great attendance, with it being right up there with some of the larger in the province. The parade saw classic cars, a number of pipe bands, transportation for those with mobility issues and could not walk the route, and lots of spectators along the route. At the end of the parade all of those that attended were invited back to the Unifor Family Education Centre for a barbecue.
