On Sunday Fran joined over 2000 union members and supporters of workers’ rights and took to the streets of Fremantle for the 2014 May Day Festival & March.
It was a day of family fun, food, music, speeches, and most importantly, solidarity. A cry of “we’ll never be defeated” rang through the city centre, sending a strong message to Liberal government that the livelihood of workers in WA (and all across Australia) is not something to be ignored.
The Cockburn Lakes and Jervoise Bay branch enjoyed a great turnout, marching side by side with members of the Fremantle branch, including Melissa Parke and Simone McGurk.
Fran would like to thank Unions WA for doing a fantastic job of organising the day. As every year, the event was a great success.
