Retired Members

Retired Members Division

The AMWU NSW is proud to have a large and active retired members’ division. The retired members’ division advocates for the rights of senior Australians and is a great way for retired manufacturing workers to stay in touch with the union.   

The retired members’ division elects representatives to the National Conference, National Council and state council, and have a direct input into the policy, direction and activities of the union. Retired members also continue to receive a number of AMWU services including the HelpDesk, legal consultation and the ACTU members connect program.

Membership is only $5 a year. Meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 10:30am on Level 2 of the AMWU building at 132 Chalmers St, Surry Hills.

Paul McDonald worked as a Senior Technical Officer at the Garden Island Dockyard for 38 years and retired in 2008. He has been a union delegate for the PREI, the CPSU and the AMWU. He was elected Secretary of the Retired Members division in 2016.
