It's the month of May Day and across Australia proud members of the Electrical Trades Union have been marching with force, pride and their union comrades at action days as we fight to Change the Rules.
May Day Marches - Part I
March floods Melbourne
A day after the Turnbull Government handed down a Budget that was nothing more than a vote-buyer aimed at older Australians and Liberals' Big Business mates, more than 100,000 people - some estimates said 120,000 - flooded the streets of Melbourne.
Traffic and trams came to a standstill as the proud trade unionists of Victoria marched through the streets to demand the rules of Australian industrial law be changed and made fairer for working Australians.
Sydney in Solidarity
On May Day ACTU Sally McManus headed to Sydney's Ultimo TAFE where she was met by ETU National Secretary Allen Hicks, National Industrial Officer Matt Murphy and NSW Organiser Mark Buttigieg as they rallied with some of our new apprentices.
On Sunday in Sydney, the ETU's NSW branch and National office joined more than 5000 proud unionists to march in solidarity through the streets.
Brisbane rattles and shakes
The streets of Brisbane were flooded with unionists as they marched on Labour Day - with the mighty ETU Queensland members shaking the city with their chants.
A big crowd was pulled into the streets of Hobart to march for a fairer go. Members of Tasmania's Communications, Electrical and Plumbing Union were out in force.
In Cairns, ETU members and their families marched for what local president Rob HIll said was a "celebration of the worker".
