Labour Day 2021

August 25, 2021

Labour Day is fast approaching, and we are excited to join with New Westminster and District Labour Council for the second ever Elsie Awards!

This year we will recognize the crucial efforts of all those workers whose tireless dedication and labour has carried us through the pandemic. We will highlight a few of those outstanding union members in the categories of Awesome Union Activist, Dedicated Front Line Worker, Outstanding Shop Steward and Caring Community Activist, as well as hearing from some special guests.

The Elsie’s will begin at 11:00AM on Monday, September 6th.

A link to the virtual event will be posted on the website and social media accounts of both Labour Council’s closer to the date. In the meantime, we invite you to help us promote the event using the shareable graphic and printable poster below.

Thank you for your support and see you on Labour Day!
