Film Screening of new film on Jack Mundey's life and politics.

Jack Mundey was part of a radical team that won the union leadership of the Builders Labourers Federation (BLF) in the 1960s.

After winning safety on the job, sick and accident pay, the BLF went on to fight apartheid, give solidarity to First Nations peoples, fight for jobs for women, for black and then green bans. Those bans saved many heritage and environmentally significant sites.
