This year's Salford May Day Parade will assemble at Bexley Square at noon on Monday 7th May, with a march to Sacred Trinity Church where, at 2pm, there will be speakers including Salford and Eccles MP, Rebecca Long Bailey, Kevin Lucas from UNISON, Paul Kelly, President of Salford TUC, and Annette Wright from Manchester TUC.
This year's Parade will be special as it's celebrating 150 years of the Trades Union Congress, which was founded by Manchester and Salford Trades Union Council.
Before this, on May Day itself, Tuesday 1st May, there's the first ever McDonald's strike in Greater Manchester, at the Oxford Road store in Manchester (M1 5EJ), linking in with another other four McDonald's stores across the country.
The McStrikers are demanding £10 an hour, guaranteed hours and for their right to join a union to be respected. There's a midnight picket from one minute after midnight on 1st May, and an early morning picket 7am-8am.
