Why Mr Abbott?

After a life time's commitment to the welfare of his fellow workers, the former Northern District President and Central Councillor, Bill Chapman, has been awarded an Order of Australia.
Bill Chapman began his working life at Abermain No. 1 colliery in the Hunter Valley at just age 14. His early start in the pits was driven by family need after his father had suffered a bad injury at Hebburn No. 2. It was years before any compensation was paid to his Dad, which sparked Bill's commitment to pursue justice for his fellow workers.
The Australian trade union movement will campaign over 2015 to stop the Federal Government allowing a cash raid by Australia’s big four banks on workers superannuation.
The banks are currently pushing the Government to allow their chronically underperforming superannuation funds easier access to the Award default super system.
