As is customary, corporate Jamaica usually sheds suits and ties and replaces boardrooms for shovels, wheelbarrows and paintbrushes as it pitches in to spruce up some of the island's neglected public spaces and buildings. On Wednesday, they came out again to labour for the nation and our cameras caught some of the activity. Here are some pictorial highlights as work duds replaced suits and ties.

In keeping with the Labour Day 2012 theme 'Step Forward, Make Jamaica Beautiful', Flow committed financial support and enlisted employees to assist in the Labour Day activities across the island. Labour Day 2012 is another in the series of national events that Flow is supporting as part of its overall programme of activities in celebration of Jamaica's 50th anniversary of Independence. - Contributed
