About Don Sutherland

I am 65 years old and live in Palm Beach, a northern suburb of Sydney. I am now  “retired” after nearly 20 years as an Education Coordinator, Organiser and Industrial Officer with the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union in their national office in Sydney.

I have been active in the union movement since the early 70’s in several jobs, inlcuding public education and factory work, and in directly employed union roles. I haave also participated in solidarity activity, and in the broad, socialist left.
