On Saturday, September 10th, the New York City Labor Day Parade and March will return to Fifth Avenue for the first time since 2019! Tens of thousands of workers representing more than 200 unions and constituency groups will come together in a powerful show of labor solidarity on the 140th Anniversary of the first Labor Day parade in the United States, when more than 10,000 workers marched from New York City Hall to Union Square in 1882.

The theme of this year’s parade is Workers Leading, Workers Rising, reflecting the enormous surge in labor activism and organizing that is taking place across the nation across all sectors of the workforce, leading to historic worker victories and an increase in worker power. We’ll be joined on Fifth Avenue by many of these newly organized workers.

We are also honored to be joined by thousands of the essential workers who risked their own safety and health to get New York City through the pandemic, and who continue to work tirelessly for their fellow New Yorkers as we continue to emerge from that crisis. These workers have also organized, using their collective voices over the past three years to secure enhanced safety measures, paid sick time, hazard pay, and negotiate furloughs or work-sharing structures in order to preserve jobs.

With Parade Grand Marshal U.S. Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh and Parade Chairs AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Fred Redmond and NYS Department of Labor Commissioner Roberta Reardon.

Join us at the nation's oldest and largest Labor Day parade! Kicking off at 10am at 5th Ave and 44th Street and marching uptown to 64th St.
