Industrial action, Kent Street

This morning I was walking north on Kent Street in the CBD when I heard raised voices. I was near King Street and looking ahead I could see a group of fluoro-clad men walking down the hill from George Street. Some of the men carried flags. They turned the corner and stopped outside a construction site, where they congregated. They were chanting slogans, which I couldn't hear clearly, but they were definitely attracting the attention of the office workers on Kent Street. Two women spoke about the gathering of workers as I walked past one office building. It was still early in the morning so the streets were full of people going to work.
