The Greater Madison County Federation of Labor is gearing up to host two parades to commemorate labor day here in the River Bend. The first one is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. in Alton. Dean Webb, the President of the Madison County Federation of Labor, outlines the parade route.
The theme for this year's parade is "we are the 99%", which Webb says directly relates to the organizations mission statement.
Tomorrow's parade will be followed by the annual Union picnic for Union members, families and friends at Gordon Moore Park. The 32nd Annual Tri-Cities Labor Day Parade and Picnic will take place on September 3rd in Granite City.
