March with us on May Day reminder – May 2017 (PDF version)

Dear members,

I would like to invite you and your family to join with us in celebrating May Day this year.

The PSA will be among the many unions proudly marching to mark the day, and I would love to see you there.

May Day is a worldwide celebration of workers’ rights, with unionists taking to the streets to celebrate the labour movement, its values, victories and ongoing struggles.

At a time when workers’ rights are under attack from both the state and federal governments, there has never been a more important time to show your support for Australia’s proud union movement.

We want as many PSA members as possible to come along to marches in Sydney and Wollongong and make a big noise.

This year’s Sydney May Day march will commence 12 midday on Sunday 7 May at Hyde Park North.

ACTU Secretary Sally McManus will be among the speakers at Hyde Park, with comedian Corrine Grant as MC.

Other speakers will include Mark Morey from Unions NSW and Dr John Falzon from St Vincent De Paul.

Following the speeches at Hyde Park, we will walk as one to Prince Alfred Park, where there will be live music, food and entertainment.

For families there will also be free activities and rides for all ages set up at Prince Alfred Park.

We want our kids and grandkids to lead our march under the banner of fighting for a better future for them.

A link to the flier for the Sydney march is HERE.

The Wollongong march will take place on 6 May. Marchers should assemble at the South Coast Labour Council headquarters at Lowden Square, opposite Wollongong railway station, at 10am.

The union movement wants to make this year’s May Day the biggest ever seen in history.

The PSA encourages its members to put on a red shirt and join the chorus of voices letting the State Government know the workers united will never be defeated.

Yours faithfully,

Stewart Little
PSA General Secretary
