Labor Day Parade and Picnic

Three progressive Nashville area groups highly concerned with workers’ rights – Middle Tennessee Jobs with Justice, the  Central Labor Council (CLC) of Nashville and Middle Tennessee AFL-CIO, and Workers’ Dignity – will again stage a celebration of Labor Day on Saturday, September 5. It is the third consecutive year the three organizations have teamed to pay tribute to America’s working men and women on their official holiday weekend.

“Working for a Better Life” will be the theme for the celebration. 

Assembly will begin at 3 PM and a colorful parade will depart at 3.30 PM from the pavilion behind St. Edward’s Catholic Church, 188 Thompson Lane in South Nashville. The parade will take route west on Thompson Lane to Nolensville Pike, where it will travel south for roughly one mile, before heading north on Nolensville and returning to St. Edward’s pavilion.

There, Workers’ Dignity will hold its annual Labor Day fundraiser and picnic, with tickets prices at $8. Unions and other groups are encouraged to purchase an ad in the Workers’ Dignity’s souvenir book, which includes a block of tickets to the 5 PM feed and musical celebration.

Local labor unions and other groups are urged to bring their union banners and colors for what promises to be a memorable event filled with solidarity and fellowship.

Last year, 200 people marched northward on Nolensville to St. Edward’s Catholic Church and it is hoped that momentum, inclusion of other area progressive groups, and political recognition that the plight of working families’ matters in this day and age will swell this year’s gathering to more than twice that.
