Paul Keating, Maritime Union of Australia Sydney branch secretary, moved the following resolution on November 24 at the Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union's (CFMMEU) national conference. It was carried unanimously.

• • •

CFMMEU National Conference is opposed to the ongoing and reckless AUKUS military alliance to develop nuclear submarine capability.

The secretive plan could cost as much as $170 billion and continues to escalate conflict with China and throughout our region.

This money should be spent on health care, education, social housing, natural disaster response and development of publicly owned renewable energy capacity.

We support workers across the world opposing war and excessive military spending and pledge ongoing opposition to further expansion of the nuclear industry.
