Labour Day in Grenada is celebrated every 1 May, as it is in much of the rest of the world. This is a holiday to celebrate the contributions of workers to the economy and society, and also a time to highlight where progress still needs to be made towards fair and safe working conditions.

Due to its two-century stint as a British colony before gaining independence in 1974, Grenada retains many holidays in common with the UK including this early May holiday (though in the UK it is known simply as the Early May Bank Holiday, rather than Labour Day or May Day).
For the common man, Labour Day provides time off work to spend with family and friends. It gives him a much-needed rest from his labours. It also provides a convenient opportunity for those who wish to protest to do so without losing a day of work.
