1998 is looming as the year when our Union fights to put a stop to the injustice and inequity of firefighters’ superannuation.

May Day also allows workers to express our demands for a higher standard of living, for world peace and for international solidarity. With the current wave of new-right attacks upon workers, this year will be a march against union-busting, against racism and against attacks on social welfare and education.
