Whether you’ve been coming to Labour Day all your life, or this will be your first time, 2014 is your chance to show that you stand for freedom and a fair go.
This year, hundreds of thousands of Queenslanders will celebrate the achievements of the union movement and use the day to signify resistance to the breakdown of democracy in Queensland.
Queenslanders have a lot to celebrate - well over a century of union successes such as the establishment of the 8 hour day, workplace health and safety, the establishment of the living wage, the push towards equal pay for women and the basic commitment to a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work.
These are hard-won victories that benefit all workers and our families, plus the general community.
However these achievements stand in direct contrast to the Newman LNP government’s obsession with driving Queensland down a “road to nowhere”. In just two years it has undermined generations of social and workplace progress and taken our State backwards.
Go here to take a stand for Queensland and join in Labour Day activities this year to stand for Queensland, and to celebrate the many achievements of the union movement.
Labour Day is and will always be in May.
