Leeds May Day 2014

Leeds May Day was a fantastic event this year which featured great speeches from Matt Wrack, General Secretary of the FBU and Alex Gordon, president of the RMT.

The March was a lively and noisey celebration of Trade Unionism in Leeds and was well received by the many shoppers and bystanders who were in Leeds City Centre on 03 May 2014.

The Slideshow below shows 74 photo's which accurately capture the spirit of the day.
