May Day 2017

The Newcastle and Illawarra Sub-Branches are once again joining this year’s May Day celebrations with members from both Sub-Branches joining their local marches in Newcastle and Wollongong respectively. Note that the NSB is marching tomorrow, whereas the ISB and Sydney marches are being held on the following weekend. The details for each follow below.

Please note that a renewed drive to contain Union expenditure means that unlike in previous years, the Union will not be providing food or drinks however free commemorative t-shirts will again be available for attending members and their families.

Assemble at Hamilton train station at 10am for a 10.30am march to Gregson Park via Beaumont Street.

Assemble at the South Coast Labor Council headquarters at Lowden Square, opposite Wollongong railway station, at 10am.

 SYDNEY

Next Sunday, 7 May

Assemble at Hyde Park North from 12 midday. We will then be marching together to Prince Alfred Park where there will be live music, food and entertainment, with activities and rides for all ages.
