Unions Back League Class Struggle
The Labor Council has swung its support behind a community campaign to keep traditional Sydney Rugby League clubs in the NRL competition.
With two local clubs expected to be cut to make way for a 14 team competition in 2000, unions have joined the rearguard action many promoted by political parties, the arts industry, the legal profession and other sporting groups.
The campaign will start with a mass rally and Gala Day at Randwick Racecourse On Sunday October 10, from 11am - to be co-ordinated by South Sydney Football Clubs.
