IEU helps ensure May Day March a big success


The IEU welcomed members and comrades to commemorate the annual May Day celebrations in Sydney over the weekend

This year's May Day celebration marked 125 years since Australia's first May Day March held in 1891 by striking shearers at Barcaldine in Queensland.

The day was a huge success, as various unions from across the state took part in a festive, colourful day of action, protest and solidarity.

Participation numbers were high for this year. According to organisers, over 7000 people took part in the march that started in Sydney’s Hyde Park on Sunday.

Unions right across NSW got involved in the family fun day, providing rides and entertainment for all the family.
