2 Australian unions speak up against AUKUS
Interview

Two major unions in Australia have discussed and challenged the military posture of the government of Australia. They have made known to their members the problems inherent in this so-called 'AUKUS' deal.

The Maritime Union of Australia, representing some 16,000 workers, declared their 'total opposition' to the reckless announcement by Scott Morrison that Australia would be developing nuclear submarines as part of a military alliance with the U.S. and the U.K.

Such a deal would continue to escalate unnecessary conflict with China, something workers are already feeling the impacts of. The funds spent on nuclear submarines would better be spent on health care and education in Australia, as well as jobs from renewables. The Electrical Trades Union offered a similar critique.

Additionally, the nuclear submarines will require significant offshore maintenance, undermining their sovereign application. After COVID, it is dubious to pitch any critical equipment to a self-respecting country that cannot be maintained in-country.
