Delegates will take to the streets of the new Federal Electorate of Bean from 11:45am - 12:30pm, calling for government action on the growing inequality and wage stagnation in Australia.
Teams of union members will door knock in Weston, and at a couple of key locations call for ACT drivers' to honk their support for equal pay.
In the afternoon, delegates will meet with Michelle O’Neil, the recently elected President of the ACTU, and Yvette Berry, the ACT's Deputy Chief Minister.
Delegates will call for public support for Equal Pay for Educators on the corner of Hindmarsh Drive and Namatjira Drive and at the Cooleman Court Shopping Centre, between 11:45am - 12:30pm.
