On behalf of the entire AWU, we offer our most heartfelt condolences to the family of Brett Quinn who lost his life in a workplace accident on 28th July 2019 in Little Mulgrave.
Brett was a long standing AWU Member and hard-working member of his community.
He was a second-generation sugar mill employee and an AWU Member for over thirty years, who will be sorely missed by his family, friends and work mates.
Our thoughts are also with the two workers, both AWU Members, who were critically injured in the same incident.
We’ll keep offering every support to them and their families while they recover in hospital.
AWU officials are on the ground to support all workers through this time and we’ll continue to work with workers and MSF Sugar to identify what went wrong and make sure that it never happens again.
