Labour Day and International Worker Memorial Day on the Gold Coast

Posted on April 21, 2017

There are two really important event coming up on the Gold Coast next week. See below for further information. I hope you can attend!

Gold Coast Labour Day Family Day - Sunday 30 April

Labour Day is our day to celebrate being union - but as we march this year, we do so with the knowledge that there is a renewed attacked on the wages and conditions of Australian workers.

It is clear that employers are eyeing off the penalty rates hundreds of thousands of hard working Australians.

We have already had the Fair Work Commission decision to cut the Sunday and public holiday rates of hospitality, retail and pharmacy workers and we are seeing industries like the nurses fighting against attempts to cut their penalty rates.

This Labour Day is our opportunity to send a message to employers and governments that union members won’t stand idly and watch our wages and conditions be reduced.
