Your help is needed Who are they??

Can anyone identify any of the men featured in a photo from my grandparents' collection?

The man in the centre of the photo appears to be the focus of the group. He's the only one seated and has a certificate or document in his hand and the hand of an official looking man on his shoulder.

My grandfather, William Hassell is squatting in the front row, far right.

He was a prominent member of the Printers' Union and was one of three members who successfully fought the case for a 44 hour week and increased wages for printing industry employees in 1919.

I am wondering if the men in the photo are fellow unionists or staff of the State Government Printing Office where my grandfather worked from 1910 until his death in 1943.
