“Rocking the Foundations” Film Screening
Militant Unionism // Environmentalism // Feminism
An outstanding historical account of the Green Bans first introduced by the New South Wales Builders Labourers Federation in the 1970s in response to community demand to preserve inner-city parkland and historic buildings. One of the first women to be accepted as a builders labourer, film-maker Pat Fiske traces the development of a quite singular union whose social and political activities challenged the notion of what a union should be.
