The 2019 Labor Day March and Celebration was held on Monday, September 2, 2019, in Detroit. The theme this year was “Labor and Community Moving Forward Together”.
Staging for SEIU marchers began at 7 a.m. at the intersection of Michigan Ave. and Cochrane. The SEIU Locals (517M, Healthcare Michigan, Local 1) joined with other union members and marched East on Michigan Ave. They joined with the other labor marchers at the intersection of Michigan and Trumball (by the site of the old Tiger Stadium). Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel was on hand and marched alongside SEIU Local 517M President Joey Combs.
After the march was completed, there was an “SEIU Family Celebration in the Park” at Lafayette Central Park.
