2002 – 32nd Anniversary

CFMEU Victorian State Secretary Martin Kingham told the gathering it was an honour to speak with the veterans of the bridge and families and friends of the workers who were killed in the tragedy.

‘It is important that we don’t let the memory die. It is important to keep in touch with each other. We need to remind a new generation of construction workers of the legacy of the workers who died here. We need to remain vigilant on issues of health and safety and remember what can happen if we leave this task to employers.’

Mr Kingham sent a greeting from CFMEU OHS manager Pat Preston, also a veteran of the bridge, who was called to a workplace fatality on his way to the memorial service.
