    Unionized workers from across a number of industries are marching in Boston to mark the Labor Day holiday.

    Labor unions representing workers in the education, health care, building trades and hospitality industries say they'll rally and march through Copley Square on Monday evening.

    Organizers say the march recognizes the achievements of the broader labor movement that the public holiday is meant to celebrate.

    It's also meant to show support for local hotel workers negotiating a new union contract with Marriott.

    Labor union officials say the hotel company owns at least seven hotels in Boston and the contract negotiations impact about 5,000 workers.
