Statement from Unions NSW secretary Mark Morey following the mass shooting in Orlando, Florida on the weekend.

The union movement has been shocked and saddened by the atrocities committed in Orlando over the weekend.

Fundamentally, what occurred is a crime against innocent human beings.

Yet we must also recognise that this is a crime specifically directed at the LGBTIQ community, a community that has historically had to face a shameful level of violence and hatred.

This community’s bravery and defiance is a magnificent example to us all.

On behalf of the union movement of New South Wales we offer every support to our American brothers and sisters.
