Cabinet issues caution to drivers and beachgoers ahead of Labour Day celebrations


The Cabinet reminds that a holiday weekend is approaching in celebration of Labour Day 2024, on 6 May 2024.

The trade unions will hold functions in celebration of the holiday.

The AT&LU will hold a Social Evening on Friday night, 3 May, from 6 am to 12 midnight at 46 North Street—the birthplace of trade unionism in Antigua and Barbuda.

A Labour Queen Pageant will be held on Saturday evening from 8:00 pm at the People’s Place on Nugent Avenue; nine intelligent and stunning females will compete for the crown.

Then on Monday morning, May 6, 2024, the AT&LU and the ABLP will gather at the V.C. Bird bust from 9:00 am to hold a rally, before marching up Market Street to the Union Headquarters,, and then down to Fort James for a day of celebration.

The Antigua and Barbuda Workers Union will gather at an open field next to the T.N. Kirnon School on Old Parham Road for a rally. It will then proceed to Ffryes Bay for picnicking.

The Cabinet urges drivers of buses and cars to exercise due care, and to swimmers on the beaches to heed the warnings of the Meteorological Office about ocean currents and waves. 

Labour Day 2024 marks 73 years since the holiday is celebrated in Antigua and Barbuda.
