(WINDSOR, ON) – The Windsor labour community was out in full force to mark this year’s Labour Day festivities. A parade featuring the many labour organizations and their members was held Monday, beginning at Unifor local 444, and proceeded along Walker Road to the Fogolar Furlan Club on North Service Road.

At the end of the route participants were treated to family fun activities including face painting, a bouncy castle, and a BBQ.

In addition to the parade, a call to action was announced for a can drive to help the needy. Non-perishable food items were collected for the Unemployed Help Centre.
