Ellis to Give May Day Toast
Notorious author and political speechwriter Bob Ellis will join Labor Council President Sam Moait and National Textile Worker Dave Evans to give the annual May Day Toast.
The Toast will be held on Monday, May 1, at the South Sydney Leagues Club in Redfern from 6.00pm.
The week of May Day celebrations will culminate in the annual May Day march to take place through the Sydney city streets on Sunday May 7 from noon.
Workers will assemble in Bathurst Street between George and Sussex Street then march down George Street to Circular Quay where they'll hear from speakers as well as a band emanating from one of Sydney's Call centers.
