Kelowna’s 4th annual Labour Day picnic will take place at Mission Creek Regional Park on Monday, Sept. 4, 2017, noon to 3:00 pm
The North Okanagan Labour Council is hosting this event from noon to 3 p.m. It’s a fun event for the whole family featuring a no cost BBQ, entertainment, such as a bouncy castle for the children, local musician; giveaway items, and informational displays from many unions and local organizations in our community.
Labour Day is an annual holiday held on the first Monday of September when we celebrate the achievements of workers across Canada. Its origins in Canada can be traced back to December 1872.
There are many Labour Councils in each province, which represent workers from many unions. You can find them in offices, supermarkets, factories, forests, the media, construction, hospitals, schools, transportation systems and even the corner coffee shop. The North Okanagan Labour Council represents about 40 unions in the North and Central Okanagan. We fight for the rights of all workers.
