In 1902, she spearheaded the formation of the Women’s International Union Label League, which was affiliated with the Toronto Trades and Labor Council. While there, May and two other women became delegates. She wrote a column for the Toronto labour newspaper, the Tribune, as well as for socialist newspapers. She also spent much of her time working to organize wage-earning women.
