    In Bruce Wilson's interview he referred to a list of about 7 items detailing the objectives (objects) of the association. No detail provided.

    Hosted at MichaelSmithnews is the Application For Incorporation Of Association document for the AWU Workplace Reform Association

    It's a PDF which most would probably ignore but I think it's an important piece of the puzzle so I've typed out the Object part here for easy reading...

    Objects of the Assocation

    3. (1) The objects of the Association are -

    (a) To contribute to the development of changes to work in order to achieve democratic, safe workplaces;
    (b) To contribute to the implementation of a more equitable distribution of wealth between employers and workers;
    (c) To contribute to the implementation of appropriate skills training for workers;
    (d) To promote and contribute to the development of unions and unionism and in particular to promote The Australian Workers' Union;
    (e) To promote within unions the adoption of the aims of the Association and its policies;
    (f) To support and assist union officials and union members who are contributing to the adoption of the aims of the Association and its policies;
    (g) To consult with union officials, union members, employers, industrial organisations, academics and others as necessary to further objects (a) to (f) herein; and

    (2) The property and income of the Association must be applied solely in accordance with the objects of the Association and no part of that property or income may be paid or otherwise distributed, directly or indirectly, to members, except in good faith in the promotion of those objects.

    Do you think Bruce and Ralph consulted with any academics to further the objectives of the association?
