Photo Set II: 2019 Labour Day Celebrations

September 3, 2019

The annual Labour Day celebrations were held on Monday [Sept 2] with people gathering on Union Square before marching through Hamilton, as they celebrated the 38th anniversary.

The morning started out with a prayer from Rev Nicholas Tweed and then BIU President Chris Furbert announced that the name of labour icon Ottiwell Simmons has been added to the BIU Headquarters building, prompting applause from the crowd.


The crowd then heard speeches from Union leaders, Minister Lovitta Foggo, and Premier David Burt before setting off on their march through Hamilton. You can view all our coverage of Labour Day events here.
