A two-fold commitment
I was amused to hear Chris Haywood proudly declare yesterday at The National Day of Community Protest that he is a member of two unions. Not only is Chris, as an actor, a member of the Media Entertainment & Arts Alliance. He is also a member of the Construction, Forestry Mining and Energy Union [CFMEU]. Chris joined the Australasian Coal & Shale Employees Federation which operated from 1916 to 1990 when filming Strikebound, the story of Wattie Doig and coal mining at Wonthaggi in Victoria. This union has now been absorbed into the CFMEU.
