On April 28, the ballot opened for the post of Queensland branch secretary of the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union. The candidates contesting the position are Brett Cardinal, a former Queensland AMWU organiser, running for Workers Unity, a militant rank-and-file group in the union, and acting state secretary Andrew Dettmer, who is supported by AMWU national secretary Doug Cameron.

Dettmer became acting state secretary in 2003 when the elected state secretary, Dave Harrison, resigned to contest preselection for a safe Labor Party seat.
