The annual Labour Day Parade, organized by Unifor Retirees and the Grey Bruce Labour Council took place on Monday starting at 11am at Port Elgin Home Hardware and ran south down Goderich Street through downtown Port Elgin.

The theme of this year's parade was about change in government with the upcoming federal election.

Unifor has over 305,000 members across the country and is Canada’s largest private sector union, working in every major sector of the Canadian economy.

The Teeswater Highlanders pipe band led the parade, followed by the Unifor retired workers, which included two other pipe bands and 1,500 people from various sectors walking and taking part. People watched the parade from one end to the other while candy and other gifts were being handed out along the parade route.

The parade was followed by a barbecue at Unifor Family Education Centre (formerly CAW), which is where the annual Retired Workers Council and Conference is being held this week.United Brotherhood of Caprenters and Joiners of AmericaLocals 2Society of Energy ProfessionalsLocals 1Parade Crowd
