Labour Day

Flag of Trinidad and Tobago.

Labour Day was declared a national holiday in Trinidad and Tobago in 1973. The day is celebrated on 19th June and marks the anniversary of the Butler Oilfield Riots which took place in 1937. Prior to this, there were ongoing tensions between workers and employers in many sectors of society. Situations such as worker abuse, underpayment for labour, racism, economic depression and a considerable fall in the living standards of the working class were factors that led to the workers’ protests.

Significant people involved in the history and legacy of Labour Day include: Tubal Uriah ‘Buzz’ Butler, Arthur Andrew Cipriani, George Weekes, Albert Maria Gomes, Adrian Cole Rienzi, Elma Francois and CLR. James.

The public holiday and long weekend is the perfect opportunity for locals to relax, appreciate their country and all of the natural attractions it has to offer.
