NSW Premier Mike Baird to face rally in Newcastle today | video, photos, live updates

UNIONS have rallied in Newcastle today ahead of NSW Premier Mike Baird’s visit to the city for a Property Council of Australia luncheon.

Hunter workers gathered at midday to protest  the government’s privatisations of Newcastle transport services.

The Premier spoke to the crowd about 12.45pm. 

Angry at being left out of discussions about the privatisations, Hunter Workers secretary Daniel Wallace said on Tuesday morning he was hopeful Mike Baird could speak to workers affected by the decision.
