Press Release: May Day’s Labour Village recruiting volunteers

For immediate release,

May Day’s Labour Village recruiting volunteers

April, 2014

[Windsor, ON] May Day—also known as International Workers’ Day—is approaching. Organizers are planning a Labour Village and march to celebrate this year’s May 1st. The march starts outside the Art Gallery of Windsor at 4:30pm and will conclude at the Labour Village built at 547 Victoria Ave., which will be open from 6-8pm.

The Labour Village will be hosted at the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation Hall and will feature dramatic performances in the “town square” while unions in historic costume set up booths to talk about the history of working men and women

“We’re looking for volunteers to make this year even better than May Day 2013,” says May Day organizer Ian Clough. “From actors to drivers, we need people to help out. No experience is necessary, just a passion for the history of labour in Windsor. This year will be even more ambitious than last year’s successful Living Museum.”

“The Labour Village will be fun for the whole family as well as recognizing the sacrifices made in Windsor that won us the labour rights we have today,” says Clough.

The May Day Organizing Committee is a volunteer organization that meets every year to plan an event to celebrate International Workers’ Day on May 1st.
