AN unprecedented campaign has been launched against the N.S.W. builders laborers, their secretary Jack Mundey and the Communist Party of Australia. Hardly a day passes without the Sydney press carrying editorials, news reports and letters on this theme. Sir Robert Askin, his deputy Mr. Cutler, and various other Liberal- Country Party politicians regularly get into the act. Not to be outdone, the "New Right” union and ALP leader Mr. John P. Ducker puts in his contribution. He is joined, if less openly, by some union officials who call themselves “left”, usually motivated by a craving for industrial respectability and for unity with Mr. Ducker, plus ideological hatred of the CPA’s independent sta'nd.
