Monday, September 3rd: 24th Annual Labor Day Picnic at Stewart Park in Ithaca from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Please join Midstate Central Labor Council and the Tompkins County Workers’ Center in celebrating labor and working families at the 24th Annual Labor Day Picnic, to be held on Monday, September 3rd from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Stewart Park.

For twenty-three years, this Labor Day event has brought hundreds of workers, their families, and community members together for a day of fun and celebration in recognition of the sacrifices and contributions working people make to our communities every single day. The theme of this years Picnic is the Employee Free Choice Act (H.R. 800, S. 1041), which would enable all of us to bargain for better wages, benefits and working conditions by restoring the freedom to choose whether or not we want to join a union.

The public is invited to the Picnic and each family is asked to bring a dish to pass to complement the free meat and veggie burgers, hot dogs, beverages, and ice cream. Everyone can enjoy listening to labor songs performed by local folksingers Colleen Kattau, Tom Sieling, and John Simon.
