Australian Manufacturing Workers' Union



Community Forum: The Future of Rail Manufacturing

The Hunter region has a proud history of rail manufacturing: it has been a critical source of jobs and investment for generations. 

However, the decision to send large rail manufacturing contracts overseas has put the industry at risk of collapse.

Therefore, the AMWU will be holding a community forum on the future of this critical industry and what it means for the reason. This event will be free and open to all.
