Happy Labour Day, Unifaithfuls!
A highlight of the summer is Labour Day, a time for Unifaithfuls to honour the blessings of work, colleagues and the people we help within and outside of the United Church.
As we approach Mon., Sept. 2, your Unifaith Executive thanks you for all that you are and do.
Across Canada, Sisters and Brothers in the Labour Movement are gathering at parades, picnics and rallies. Please consider participating in Labour Day events in your own community. You will be especially welcomed by Unifor Locals, so introduce yourself as a Unifor Unifaith Community Chapter member. Solidarity feels great!
For instance, here is the Vancouver details: >>>>>
If you and your family are in the Toronto area, come join Unifaith at Unifor’s Labour Day Celebration. The parade is followed by a boat cruise – participation is optional. If you want to go for the cruise, please RSVP today or tomorrow so we can book your tickets, paid for by Unifaith. (Sorry for the tight timeline – we just learned about this).
