MUA Numbers Strong in Fremantle May Day Rally

MUA members were out in droves over the weekend taking part in May Day marches held in all capital cities and most regional towns. 

This year speeches were centred around the need to be prepared for a snap Federal Election and to start organising against the Abbott Government now.


MUA WA Branch Secretary Christy Cain said May Day was a day of solidarity.

"Now more than ever, we have to stand together as one to fight the anti-workers forces such as Chevron and their Federal Government cheerleaders such as Michaelia Cash," Cain said.

"These are the people who would happily give your job away to an exploited foreigner so they can work them into the ground, with no rights, no conditions just because it'll save them a couple of dollars."
