Labour Day 2018

Join your fellow AWU members at the 2018 Labour Day Marches right across Queensland.

This year's march is part of the 12 Days of Action, campaigning to Change the Rules  for more secure jobs and better pay.  

Working people need a wage rise and secure work. We need to change the rules to give all working people the basic rights they need to improve their living standards.

Join the Labour Day march as part of the 12 Days of Action to show your support.

There will be "AWU Strong- Union Proud" t-shirts and caps available for AWU members who march.

Many thanks to the support of our partners Maurice Blackburn Lawyers, Chifley Financial Sevices and AustralianSuper for supporting the AWU for Labour Day 2018.
