35th Anniversary

Bridgeport, CT

Friday April 22, 2022


Dear Brothers, Sisters and Friends of Organized Labor:

You are invited to participate and join with us on Friday, April 22, 2022.  This ceremony marks the 35th anniversary of the L'Ambiance Plaza collapse that took place on April 23, 1987.  Due to faulty lift slab construction, twenty-eight (28) workers were crushed to death at the site of the L'Ambiance development.

Every year, organized labor, family members and friends have gathered to remember and pay tribute to the workers who lost their lives, their families, the rescue workers and all those who assisted in any way during and after the collapse.

The ceremony will begin at 10:45 a.m. at the Bridgeport City Hall Building, located at 45 Lyon Terrace.
