LABOR DAY PARADE - JOIN US!
The annual Labor Day Parade in Detroit will be on Monday, September 5th at 930 am.
IAFF members should meet on Michigan Avenue just west of the intersection of Rosa Parks/Michigan Ave. Look for the MPFFU Banner. Wear your red MPFFU shirt or another red shirt if possible. Feel free to bring family members and your kids. Strollers and wagons are welcome too! It is supposed to be sunny and warm so dress accordingly and bring some water.
The parade begins at 930 am so get there in time to find parking and to walk to the Rosa Park/Michigan AVe. location by 915 am. Locals in the metro-Detroit area are urged to be represented at this event, so please share with all of your members.
We understand that this is a family holiday for many of our members but "Labor" is the reason that this is a holiday. Let's join with our brother and sisters from other unions and show the Governor and the Legislature that Labor is alive and well in Michigan!
