Rocky set for Labour Day Dinner
FOR the first time in more than 30 years, Rockhampton will host a Labour Day Dinner on Friday, May 4.
The dinner, before the Labour Day long weekend, will allow the community and unionists to gather to celebrate the achievements of the working class, not only in recent times but also over the last 150 years, Craig Allen of the Queensland Council of Unions says.
"We are extremely fortunate that Ged Kearney, the Australian Council of Trade Unions President will attend as a guest speaker," Mr Allen said.
"Ged is well known within the union movement as a great unionist and a leader for the ACTU and she has been standing alongside workers during her time as president."
He said the Rockhampton branch of the Queensland Council of Unions was also looking forward to the attendance of Bruce Childs, a veteran of the Australian parliament.
Bruce was a Labor senator during the 1970s.
Tickets for the dinner are on sale from the Trades Hall Building, Campbell St, Rockhampton.
