Bye Bye Bob

Today in the show, we share updates from the NUW, AMWU, QTU, TWU, RTBU, UV and CFMMEU. We also pay tribute to outgoing MUA QLD branch secretary Bob Carnegie.

Bob has led the MUA in Queensland to carry on its tradition as a trailblazing union, and the most progressive in all Australia. In his time as seceetary, he has consistently taken a militant stand in defence of workers rights, indigenous land rights struggles and refugee rights. If every union official was like Bob, we would be on the cusp of a general strike that would tip Australia over the edge into a revolution!
