Statement on Chris Minns

The Australian Manufacturing Workers Union represents thousands of workers across NSW in manufacturing and related industries. We are also an affiliated union of the NSW Labor Party.

The following quotes are attributable to Steve Murphy, Secretary, AMWU NSW & ACT Branch:

“We do not have confidence in Chris Minns’s ability to unite the labour movement in this state.”

“His views on the role of unions in the Labor Party, as well as his views on critical policy areas such as privatization, are unacceptable for someone in the role of Opposition Leader or Premier.”

“As the Labor party faces another term in opposition we can no longer accept substandard leadership of the parliamentary party. We look forward to supporting a candidate who can reaffirm Labor’s historic relationship with the working people of the state.”
