Framework of Flesh: Builders' Labourers Battle for Health & Safety 2009

Client:  CFMEU - Construction, Forestry, Mining, Energy Union

This project was commissioned Humphrey McQueen to write a history of the Builders Labourers Federation. The resulting book, 'We Built This Country', is a broad-brush look at builders' labourers and their unions since the convict era. Builders' labourers built this country socially and culturally as well as with concrete. The experiences of the builders' labourers thus open a window into the making of the Australian working class.
