Australian Manufacturing Workers' Union


Delegates' Forum

Up to 70 delegates from across the state were able to come together in July to meet in Adelaide.

The day ran well, with great buy-in from all delegates on our upcoming Support Aussie Made campaign.

State Secretary Peter Bauer opened the forum reflecting on the highs and lows of the past year. 

Delegates then listened to a speech via zoom from National Secretary Steve Murphy who talked about the direction the union will head nationally in the next year.

The focus will be growing industrial power, improving delegate development and bringing back working class politics to the national debate. 

“AMWU delegates are known as some of the most strategic, hard-working and militant delegates in the whole of Australia’s union movement. 

“Delegates are the heartbeat of our union. 

“The truth is bosses tolerate union officials, but they fear workers when they are organised,” Steve told the forum,” he said. 

Assistant State Secretary Glenn Thompson alongside Manufacturing Campaign Committee (MCC) member Paul Gunner launched the Support Aussie Made campaign. 

The The MCC is a member-led national campaign committee that are working to implement the national manufacturing campaign - Support Aussie Made - aimed at restoring Australian manufacturing industries.
