Photos & Video: Bermuda’s Labour Day March

September 4, 2017

Crowds of union members, family, friends, supporters and politicians turned out to the Labour Day celebrations held at Union Square today [Sept 4].

The day’s activities got underway with the annual Labour Day road race, and continued with Labour Day greetings led off by Reverend Nicholas Tweed offering a prayer, and those delivering remarks included Premier David Burt, Home Affairs Minister Walton Brown, BIU President Chris Furbert, BPSU and BTUC President Sen. Jason Hayward, Teachers Union President Shannon James, and Entertainers Union President Leroy Simmons.


The march led off from Union Square and made its way through the city before returning to BIU Headquarters where vendors were on hand with food, refreshments, clothing and more available for purchase, and a DJ playing music for the gathered crowd.

We will have additional videos later on, and in the meantime you can view all our coverage of Labour Day here.

  1. Sergio says:

    Is this Labor Day, or another PLP march?

    Typically LD (amongst other things) marks the end of the summer. How appropriate.

    It’s going to be a long, cold, winter.

    • Time Shall Tell says:

      Well Sergio, let’s break it down for you.

      Labor Day…. Progressive “Labor” Party.

      Besides for the obvious, this must be the first march you have seen because the PLP has always been a strong supporter of Labor Day.

  2. Can't believe it says:

    Sergio, we understand, you just haven’t been able to adjust to the fact that the OBA got an a** whooping that they will never forget. It takes time Sergio don’t worry keep your chin up.

    When is waste collection this week? In the past a notice went out notifying us. Not this year. The basic things are already being neglected. Incompetence at the top.

  5. aceboy says:

    Jason Hayward has called for Independence. The stupidity begins.

  6. Joe Bloggs says:

    It is the annual Labour Day celebration. It has been going on for decades.

  7. dae says:

    more like the retired PLP voter base chug along

  8. Seniors says:

    Now come on. The population voted for what they wanted, and now they will get exactly what they voted for. This is why the PLP were voted out by those very same people last time – they have such short memories.

  9. wahoo says:

    Will BIU please produce the financials all the way back to 1999? I want to know how my dues have been spent for the last 18 years.

    How come Wayne has to carry de toilet paper?

    The picture summed it up, Tweed soon to be a status Bermudian with E F Gordon,
    speaking to a few yawning disinterested sheepies
    So, no more mold in schools, no labour unrest, no crime and no marches-hail the plp
    Perhaps other people might decide to take to the streets but we will not put old folks in harms way or assault the police
