May Day 2018 – Join us!

Apr 5, 2018News

The RTBU NSW will be attending this year’s May Day event in full force, and we want as many members to come along and join us on Sunday, May 6th. There are plenty of other events happening around the state if you can’t make the Sydney rally, so check them out below.

What is May Day?

May Day is an annual day of action to celebrate the achievement of our union movement and workers’ rights across the world.

For us at the RTBU NSW, it’s our time to stand up against this Liberal Government – in particular – Andrew Constance. Our workforce has been consistently under attack with the Liberal Government’s obsession with privatisation and driving down the workforce. This year the right to strike was taken from us, so now more than ever, we must stand up and fight back. Sunday May 6th is the day to do it.

We’ll be joining together to march with our friends and family through the streets of Sydney with a BBQ and an afternoon of family fun, so please join us.

Want a RTBU NSW May Day 2018 t-shirt? Be one of the first 100 to RSVP to the rally and you’ll get a shirt. RSVP by emailing nswho@rtbu-nsw.asn.au so you can get your shirt. Get in quick!
