Australian Manufacturing Workers' Union

 

Delegates Forums 2016

Last week, AMWU delegates from across Queensland came together to talk about the future of the manufacturing industry in Australia. Delegates’ forums were held in Brisbane, Mackay, Rockhampton and Townsville drawing in hundreds of passionate members from all walks of life.

National Secretary Paul Bastian and State Secretary Rohan Webb spoke to delegates about the importance of building up members and having a strong and active union base in the face of the challenges that lie ahead in the coming years.

These forums are a great opportunity for delegates to have input into their union. Our members’ main concerns were security of employment, loss of manufacturing jobs in regional areas and what the State and Federal Governments are doing about it.

Your union is working to make sure that delegates have the skills to organise in the workplace, can learn from other delegates in the industry and have a real say in our union.
