Mayor Purzycki Invites Citizens to Attend Annual AFL-CIO Parade Downtown as City of Wilmington Celebrates Labor Day
City offices will be closed for the holiday; recycling collection schedule is modified
Wilmington Mayor Mike Purzycki today invited citizens to attend the Annual Wilmington Labor Day Parade on Monday, September 2, 2019, which steps off from 4th and King Streets at 10:00 a.m. The Mayor will join Delaware State AFL-CIO President James Maravelias, Executive Director Gerald Brady, State Senator John “Jack” Walsh, State Representative Edward Oszeinski, and a host of elected officials, local dignitaries and union members to honor the achievements of Delaware’s working men and women.
The parade will proceed north along King Street to Rodney Square, at 1000 North King Street, where union members and their families will gather to commemorate the day. Organizers expect more than 2,000 members representing over 30 individual affiliates from within the Delaware AFL-CIO to march in this year’s parade. In addition, ten non-affiliated units representing constituency groups allied with the state federation will also participate.
Since Wilmington City government offices will be closed on Monday, September 2, for the Labor Day holiday, the Department of Public Works’ Sanitation Division will collect recyclables on a modified holiday schedule:
Monday, September 2: Holiday/No recycling collection
Tuesday, September 3: East of I-95 recycling collection
Wednesday, September 4: West of I-95 recycling collection
