Summary Jack Mundey became a ntional figure in the early 1970s when as Secretary of the NSW branch of the Builders' Labourers' Federation, he led the union's famous green bans. Under Jack's guidance the BLF joined with local communities to preserve such significant sites as Sydney's historic Rocks area, Centennial Park, Victoria Street in Kings Cross and the last stretch of public bushland on the Parramatta River. He also fought for safety reforms on building sites and helped usher in a new era of union activism for wider social issues.
