The Labour Minister, President, or other public officials will give a Labour Day Address to the nation each year. This special speech focuses on the needs of Saint Lucia’s workers, the progress made in meeting past needs, and the importance of everyday workers to the nation’s prosperity and future.

Workers’ trade unions will normally organise pro-labour events and marches for 1 May. Such events both celebrate work and demand improved conditions for Saint Lucia’s workers.

Families in Saint Lucia generally have a festive family dinner and a get together with relatives and friends. They may also get out to the beach for a swim or go on a nature trek.
