Labor Day Parade set for September 8, 2012

No news about our contract, but members did receive in the mail, a flyer about the Labor Day Parade.

The New York City District Council of Carpenters is once again holding its annual Labor Day Parade on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2012. Numbers in the past few years have been low, but this year under a new administration, we want full membership participation. There will be floats, t-shirts, hats, stickers, food and beverage, and the always popular Pipe and Drum band. Please bring your family and friends and help spread the word!

Labor Day is a very important part of our union's history. Founder of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America Peter J. McGuire is credited for coming up with the idea of Labor Day as a national holiday in 1882. This is a day for all labor to come together to celebrate and show each other support. This is your day brothers and sisters and we encourage all to come out.

Parade Day: Our members will be lining up at West 44th Street between 6th Avenue and Broadway between 8:30 am and 9:30 am. Get there bright and early!



  2. Searching for a perfect drummer for my solo project I
    found Will's website! Already the first contact with him
    was very responsive and friendly! Right from the beginning
    I felt my explanations and wishes very understood and he
    recorded very fast and professionally one song after another
    exactly to my taste! In addition it is very much fun to
    communicate and work with him! Many thanks to Will for
    the great co-operation and it has surely not been the last!"

I would ask that if you would like to leave a comment that you think of Local 157 Blogspot as your online meeting hall and that you wouldn’t say anything on this site that you wouldn’t, say at a union meeting. Constructive criticism is welcome, as we all benefit from such advice. Obnoxious comments are not welcome.
