The Workers Boom

In Cam and Roos absence, Myself (Feargal) and Bill have taken over Echo Boom and brought in all our union mates to talk about industrial issues and play a few union favourites!

We are joined by: RTBU Queensland Branch assistant state secretary Tom Brown to talk about some of the issues confronting Bus Drivers; NUW organiser Isaac Avery to talk about issues facing farmers, warehouse workers, and the NUW active role in campaigning for the right to strike; and ETU organiser Gary Rogers talking to us about Asbestos silicosis.

And of course workers actions, the scallywag of the week, and upcoming events for the week.
