May Day, a celebration of the struggle to change broken rules.
May Day is the workers day, a day that brings workers, their families and friends and the community together to celebrate the achievements and the struggles of workers across our region, our country and internationally. May Day, normally celebrated on May 1st, has its beginnings 162 years ago in the struggle for shorter working hours, and today May Day means much, much more than that. From shorter working hours to annual leave, public holidays, weekends, penalty rates, the minimum wage, OHS, workers comp, Medicare, public health, public housing, and public transport just to name a few. Working people have always been at the forefront of the struggle for better and improved working conditions and social standards.
Meet at Hamilton Train Station Carpark @ 10am ready to March @ 10:30am down Beaumont St to Gregson Park for celebration and speech’s.
