MUA Numbers Strong in Sydney 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.

At the Sydney event, Branch Secretary and May Day Committee Secretary Paul McAleer spoke on the steps of Town Hall to a crowd of a couple of thousand.


"May Day is a day to remember that we still have a long way to go until we have true equality in Australia," McAleer said.

"And we can never truly achieve absolute equality until we, as a free society are afforded the right to strike; the fundamental human right to withdraw our labour."

On Friday of May 1, a Toast was held at the Worker's in Balmain.
