 This episode of Creatures of the Industry Series 4, features Part 2 of an interview with Fergal Doyle, who begins the story at the point where the brickies union was facing the "disappointing but unsurprising" result of losing amalgamation by 80 votes. He discusses the work in rebuilding a culture of organising through the '90s, his work for the CFMEU, a memorable blue in Hastings, and more, ending with a discussion around industry standards and political challenges for the future.
