This year’s theme: ‘Stand With Working Families’

A lottery drawing at the St. Louis Labor Council’s July meeting has set the parade line-up for the Greater St. Louis Labor Council’s Labor Day Parade on Sept. 7. All except for Sheet Metal Workers (SMART) Local 36, which requests it always be the last unit in the parade, were selected at the meeting.

This year’s parade theme is “Stand with Working Families.”

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon and Attorney General (and 2016 candidate for governor) Chris Koster have been invited to serve as grand marshals.

Groups will start forming at 7 a.m. on Olive Street between Jefferson and 15th Street. A chart of locations for all units to form up will be mailed shortly by the Labor Council and will be published in the Labor Tribune.

The parade will step off at 9 a.m. led by the mayor, police chief and fire chief, and immediately followed by a horse-drawn trolley with 20 members of the Musicians Association of St. Louis Local 2-197, and proceed east on Olive at 15th to Tucker Blvd., south on Tucker to Market Street, then west on Market to 15th.
