Research Report 50: Dr David Hamill AM – Hayden Oration 2016

In his Hayden Oration Dr David Hamill AM, former State Treasurer, discusses the continuing decline of the ALP’s trade union base, particularly in the private sector, and the weakening of party allegiances in general. He advocates greater membership involvement in the selection of candidates and a more flexible approach to the benefits of privatisation of state assets to broaden its constituency.

(The ALP) must speak to and must speak for those in both the public and private sectors and the new generations employed across the service sector, including those who are self-employed or contracting in what would once have been jobs in large private and public sector enterprises.
