Dear Sisters and Brothers:
Welcome back to the 43rd Annual Labor Day Parade and Picnic! This year we dedicate our parade to all those who were affected by the pandemic. The last two years the LA/LB Harbor Labor Coalition launched the Labor of Love Food Distribution program in lieu of our parade to help fight food insecurity during these difficult times; we are proud to report that our efforts fed 4,500 local families. Presently, we face political and social unrest, racial inequality, the demise of our democracy, an inflated economy, a divisive America, poverty/homelessness, climate denial, war and a growing list of other problems. Organized labor is a lifeline of defense that gives voice to working people all over the world. Currently, organizing efforts include the unionization of Amazon and Starbucks workers just to name a few. More than ever this pandemic has proven that all WORKERS are essential! This Labor Day we will continue to stand together, side by side as we move forward for a better and stronger future! It is up to each of us to do our part in re-shaping America and the Labor movement. Please join us on September 5, 2022 as we keep our forty-three year tradition alive as indicated by our theme “Unions Marching Forward in 2022!”
We encourage you to participate in our Best Decorated float contest; trophies will be awarded. Be creative, festive and original!

40th annual Labor Solidarity Parade
39th annual Labor Solidarity Parade
This Labor Day, Monday, September 2, 2019, we will celebrate the 40th Anniversary of our Labor Day Parade. We celebrate the contribution of many that have made our yearly Parade possible throughout the years, and those of our Union Sisters and Brothers that have passed on. It is with great pride that we look back on labor’s victories and struggles for living wages, single-payer healthcare, pensions, and work place safety.
