The CFMEU's inaugural Young Activists conference brought together some 100 young members from around Australia to build skills and plan the fight against attacks on work conditions.
Nathan Donnolly, a Mining and Energy member from Queensland's Goonyella Riverside mine, said the passion and enthusiasm from participants made the Conference a great event.
"It was really interesting to get insight from fellow CFMEU members in other industries and the big fights they've got ahead of them," said Nathan.
