December 4, 2023

Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union (CFMMEU) National Secretary Christy Cain called on the Australian Council of Trade Unions to organise trade unions for a permanent ceasefire and an end to the blockade on Gaza in an address to the December 3 mass rally and march in Naarm/Melbourne.

“Peace has always been union business,” he said, urging PM Anthony Albanese to “get off his knees” and to support the people of Palestine.
