Adding a label from a listener


I am working on a custom blueprint that should force the users to add labels to their page, before saving the page. The approach for this that I took is that when the user tries to save the blank page thats created by the blueprint, the code below listening for the PageCreateEvent and its during this time that I am currently trying to add an hardcoded label. But as of now I am not sure why the label is not getting added to the page. I do see those sysouts on the console but am clueless why the label is not getting added to the page. Please help.

public class PageCreatedListener implements DisposableBean {
	 protected EventPublisher eventPublisher;
	 private final LabelManager labelManager;
	 private final PageManager pageManager;
	 private final Logger log;

	 public PageCreatedListener(EventPublisher eventPublisher, LabelManager labelManager, PageManager pageManager) {
	        this.eventPublisher = eventPublisher;
	        this.labelManager = labelManager;
	        this.pageManager = pageManager;
	        log = LoggerFactory.getLogger(PageCreatedListener.class);
	 public void pageCreateFromTemplateEvent(PageCreateEvent event) {
		 Page page= pageManager.getPage(event.getPage().getId());
		System.out.println("PAGE ID " + page.getId());
		labelManager.addLabel((Labelable) page, new Label("timesheet"));
		System.out.println("LABEL 1 ADDED");
        labelManager.addLabel((Labelable) page, new Label("timesheettwo"));
        System.out.println("LABEL 2 ADDED");


	public void destroy() throws Exception {

To add a label to a page, try to use the LabelUtil.addLabel("label", labelManager, page)- method.
This works fine for me:
for(String i : labels)LabelUtil.addLabel(i, labelManager, event.getPage());
