For Immediate Release:
September 5th, 2022 – Today, Trades NL observes Labour Day 2022, acknowledging the hardworking members of the Newfoundland and Labrador Building Trades Industry.
Celebrated every year on the first Monday in September, Labour Day stands as a reminder to everyone of the progress that has been made over the last 150 years – as it continues to encourage the worker movement in the fight for fair wages and safer workplaces.
