Unions to stage rally against free trade agreement

GLADSTONE unions will host a rally on Monday, August 17 to protest against the Federal Government's signing of the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement.

The agreement was signed in June, giving both nations access to each other's markets.

The deal has to be ratified by Parliament before it comes into effect.

Participating unions include the CFMEU, ETU, MUA, AMWU and the AWU.

Rally participants will meet at the corner of Yaroon St and Hanson Rd, Gladstone, at noon.

A barbecue and soft drinks will be on offer.
