Union activists leafleted street by street and door by door over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend. Solidarity is keen to spread a radical and refreshing message to as many people as possible. Activists chatted to locals about the continuing importance of May Day. They stressed how the balance had swung in favour of the employer and how the TUC bureaucracies were failing to counter this. These pictures show activists in the North East but the Union was out 'on the step' around the country.
