May Day 2022: Newcastle Rally
Three cheers for the amazing turnout of RTBU Members across so many May Day rallies!
May Day is an important day for unions worldwide, and these rallies are always a highlight of the year for the RTBU. It was great to see so many members participating, and bringing along their families and friends across different rallies around the state, making a fun day out of supporting the contribution of workers and the call for the ongoing improvement of employee conditions.
One of the rallies with a great roll-up was the Hunter Workers May Day Rally. A great speech was given by Leanne Holmes, our National Vice President and member of the Hunter Workers executive committee, which riled up the crowd and reiterated just how strong our unity is in fighting for workers’ rights.
Thank you to all who observed May Day this year, and every year. It continues to serve as a great reminder of how strong we are when we’re united.
