WHEREAS, Friday, September 4 - Monday, September 7, 2020, the Allegheny/Fayette Central Labor Council will celebrate Labor Day by holding Labor’s Weekend of Service in honor of frontline workers and organized labor’s commitment to serve our communities and take care of those in need; and,

 

WHEREAS, the Labor Day Parade has been the largest event to honor union workers, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the parade has been cancelled.  Fortunately, under Darrin Kelly’s leadership, and the help of local union members, the alternative “Labor’s Weekend of Service” will continue the tradition of honoring past, present and future members; and,

 

WHEREAS, during this weekend, the Allegheny/Fayette Central Labor Council held a food distribution hosted, in conjunction with the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and the Pittsburgh Penguins, where more than 200 union volunteers showed up and served more than 500 cars; and,

 

WHEREAS, in addition, a neighborhood clean-up is scheduled at Renzie Park and at the Veterans Memorial and a Veterans Memorial Beautification is scheduled at Obey and Steuben Streets in Crafton Heights, where they will be honored to be joined with the past PA State Commander of the DAV, Albert Burlikowski, who is still actively involved in many initiatives and is humbled by the renovations; and,

 

WHEREAS, the labor council will conclude the event on Monday, September 7th, with Labor Day Mass at St. Paul's Cathedral; and,
