Democratic gubernatorial nominee Tom Wolf will lead Pittsburgh's Labor Day Parade on Monday, say labor officials who last week nixed participation by Republican Gov. Tom Corbett.

The union representatives said Wolf embodies the parade's theme: fair wages for all workers.

“He's the labor-endorsed candidate for governor,” said Marty Marks, spokesman for the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO.

Corbett campaign spokesman Billy Pitman said the governor has had good relationship with boilermakers and laborers unions during his tenure. He will attend Labor Day rallies with those unions.

The parade begins at 10 a.m. at Centre Avenue and Grant Street. It will proceed along Grant to the reviewing stand outside the United Steelworkers of America building on the Boulevard of Allies. Organizers expect 60,000 people to participate.
