Thank you to everyone who made May Day 2010 a great celebration

Thank you to everyone who turned out to help us celebrate May Day. A fantastic day was enjoyed by thousands of people at the Fremantle Esplanade Reserve.

The theme for May Day this year was ‘No WorkChoices in WA’ and a big turn out sent a strong message to our politicians that the workers of WA and their families do not want a repeat of John Howard’s anti-worker WorkChoices legislation.

The traditional May Day march through Fremantle was addressed by Maritime Union Secretary Chris Cain before returning to the Esplanade to hear from UnionsWA Secretary Simone McGurk and some workers affected by poor state government decisions regarding their employment conditions and privatisation of public services. This was followed by a great afternoon of entertainment in the sun with fantastic bands, stalls from a huge range of unions and community organisations, free rides and kids entertainment. Judging by the queues for the free sausage sizzle attendance was even better than expected so thank you to everyone who came down and made the day a true celebration of the WA labour movement.
