Happy May Day—join us on Sunday to highlight union achievements and protest cuts to university fundingHappy May Day to all NTEU members! May Day is a celebration of the achievements and continuing struggles of the Union movement. On this day, and in the days following, Unionists from all sectors will come together to show solidarity with each other and the campaigns we’re involved in.
For the NTEU, this means working with other unionists to highlight our Uni Cuts, Dumb Cuts campaign.
As you know, NTEU is campaigning vigorously against cuts to university funding announced by the federal government. Today, full-page advertisements have appeared in major newspapers signed by over 1000 university professors and associate professors supporting our campaign.
In NSW, NTEU has been working with the broader movement to revitalise May Day and emphasise the important role unions play in the community. It has also been a fantastic opportunity for us to discuss university funding with our colleagues from other unions.
We’d like to invite all NTEU members to join us at the Sydney May Day rally on Sunday.
We’ll be meeting at the top of Martin Place, under the NTEU flags, at 11.15. At 11.30 we will join everyone outside Parliament House, and take part in the March at 12 noon.
This is an opportunity to have a fun day in the city with your family, support the NTEU funding cuts campaign, and show solidarity with other unions whose support we will need in the coming period.
