The Anniversary of the 1917 Great Strike – Community Day
This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the Great Strike of 1917.
This strike saw 1,100 tramway workers and 3,000 Eveleigh Railway Workshop
employees walk off the job - triggering a strike that swept across Australia.
Occurring at a tumultuous time in Australia’s history the strike’s impact was
felt for years to come.
As the heart of the NSW transport system, the Eveleigh Locomotive
Workshop set the precedent for important workers’ rights such as the eight-hour
day and minimum rates of pay.
On Saturday 5th August, the 1917 Great Strike Community Day
will commemorate this anniversary across the former Eveleigh Railway Workshops.
You can learn more about the Eveleigh Railway Workshops on the website www.eveleighstories.com.au
Music, art, heritage, stories, entertainment, food and more, will
come together to mark this historic event. We will also be celebrating the
130th Anniversary of Blacksmithing at ATP with live Blacksmithing
demonstrations throughout the day.
If you would like to take part in a Heritage Tour of ATP, please

This Community Day is a free event running from 10am to 3:30pm. We
would love to see you there!
