South West District President Andy Honeysett retires at the end of June, ending a long career as an underground coal miner and unionist. Andy is respected across the union as a determined fighter for members and loyal colleague.
“Andy was made to be a union official,” said his predecessor, former South West President Wayne McAndrew.
“He’s one of the fairest people I know, a real stickler for fairness. He wouldn’t tolerate bullying or heavy-handedness by anyone, especially the mine owners.
