Join PPT and Amalgamated Transit Union Local 85 as we march in the first in-person Labor Day Parade since the pandemic’s start!
PPT is a grassroots union of both transit riders and transit workers. We know that we are the ones using the system every day and that together, we have the knowledge needed to improve conditions for us all. One of our most fun celebrations of this community-union solidarity is when we march in the Pittsburgh Labor Day Parade – which is the oldest Labor Day Parade in the country!
The parade has been on pause since the start of the pandemic, but on September 4th, 2022 we’re getting the band back together. We’ll meet at 10am at the 91 Crawford St, Pittsburgh, PA 15219, right across from Freedom Corner. When we’re all there we’ll find our spot on the parade line with ATU Local 85. A 40′ PRT bus will join us for the march! We’ll walk our route (approx 1 mile) and then walk back to the start. If anyone needs rides to the event, or back to the start, just reach out to let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org.
