Green bans, red union

Sunday, 25 December 2016 - 11:00am to 11:30am

In 2016 we celebrated 20 years of Earth Matters on the air, and 40 years for 3CR Community Radio.

This week we’re delving into 3CR’s rich archive to bring you an interview with trade unionist Jack Mundey.
Jack talks about the tumultuous era of the Green Bans, and how rank-and-file unionists in the Builders Labourers Federation (BLF) took control of their union and forged links with the broader community.

Guest: Jack Mundey (archival interview from 3CR’s City Limits program in 1999)


Earth Matters #1067 was produced by Teishan Ahearne.

Sunday 11:00am to 11:30am
Local, national and international environmental issues from grassroots, activist perspectives with a strong social justice focus. Distributed nationally on the Community Radio Network.
