Sunday, 25 May 1919 - Postal Deadline

Sundays are a day for family. Even during the strike the respective propaganda newspapers took the day off.

Seven thousand workers show up for an evening gathering at Victoria Park. Some may have come to enjoy the cool breeze off the river on a 30 degree day but others came bearing news of an employer's ultimatum.

The Post Office has told it's workers that if they don't show up for work tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. they are terminated, along with any pension they may have earned (source).
