Labour Day, Monday, September 7, 2020
The NSGEU Offices will be closed for Labour Day.
Every year, union members, families, and supporters come together on Labour Day to reflect and celebrate the workers’ rights we have won and the workers’ struggles we have overcome and to face together the challenges that lie ahead.
Labour Day will be celebrated on Monday, September 7, 2020.
This year workers face new challenges in light of the pandemic. Most events will be celebrated online. Here is a listing of both online and in-person events occurring over the Labour Day Weekend across Nova Scotia.
