This monument was conceived jointly by the Brampton/Mississauga and District Labour Council (BMDLC), the City of Brampton and artists Rob Moir and Sally Lawrence to commemorate Union accomplishments, promote Health and Safety in the Workplace and celebrate work and community. It will be installed in the Flower City Campus on McLaughlin and Queen St. in Brampton.
After passing through a lovely gateway, the visitor will walk through a tree lined brick promenade towards the “Circle of Gratitude” before proceeding to the labyrinth that sits by a peaceful pond. In the centre of this circle is a brick pillar that displays silver roses for Brampton and golden sheaves of wheat for Mississauga.
