We Are Union Family & Community Day

This Family and Community Public Holiday, unions are hosting a free family event at Westide Acton Park near Floriade.

The family event will include free live music, balloons, face-painting and colouring in for kids, and fairyfloss and popcorn.

And of course, unions will be raising awareness about the importance of well-funded public services, affordable health care, and protecting penalty rates.

The event will take place from 11am until 3pm at Westside Acton Park (3 Barrine Dr, Acton).

The Family and Community Day Public Holiday has a long, but little known, history in Canberra. The public holiday originated in 1932 and was originally called Union Picnic Day. It was created when a number of unions came together to run a picnic for members after the Capital Territory was first formed. Over the years, it was incorporated into Awards and industrial agreements, and eventually became a popular public holiday celebrated by the entire community.

In 1977, 1997 and 2000, various employer organisations unsuccessfully tried to have the Union Picnic Day public holiday abolished, and in 2005 the Howard Government used the WorkChoices laws to finally remove Union Picnic Day.

After a strong campaign by unions, in 2007 the ACT Government agreed to re-instate Union Picnic Day, this time re-named as Family and Community Day.

Today, the public holiday created by union members is enjoyed by the entire community.

That’s why we hope you will visit our event at Westside Acton Park – a union picnic on Family and Community Day to celebrate the time we spend with family, friends and our neighbours.

You can get some more information about the event here: http://www.weareunioncbr.org.au/family_and_community_day_2016

There will be live music, as well as free face-painting, colouring-in and balloons for kids, and free popcorn and fairyfloss.

We hope to see you there
