    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 register to either the 11am or 1:30pm tours at atp.communications@mirvac.com.  

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