Labour Day Long Weekend

http://worksite.actu.org.au/eight-hour-day-work-rest-play/
 Labour Day is celebrated on various different days in the different states and territories of Australia and sometimes called Eight-Hour Day as the day commemorates the granting of an eight-hour working day for Australians. It is also the day where we recognise worker's rights and the contribution workers make to the nation's economy.

Considering that over 100 years of work place relations was just condensed into two sentences, if you'd like to read more about the topic, the JCU Library has some great resources.

The JCU Library will be open on Labour Day from 1pm to 5pm in both Cairns and Townsville. The Townsville InfoCommons is open 24 hours.
