Annual May Day rally on Saturday

The local chair of the Trades Union Council has called on everyone to support this year’s annual May Day rally on Saturday.

Liam Gallagher said: “It’s an important occasion that allows us to show solidarity with workers throughout the world.

“May Day finds its roots in the Haymarket in Chicago in 1867 when workers took to the streets to establish a 40-hour working week and the right the paid holidays.

“It’s ironic that in 2015 hundreds of people in this city are on zero hour and fixed term contracts.”

The rally starts at 1pm in Guildhall Square.

before a march through the city centre.
