Unions NSW has expressed shock and condemnation at the attack on a Jewish family walking home early on Saturday morning in Bondi.

 

On behalf of working people across the State, Unions NSW Secretary, Mark Lennon said racially motivated violence was utterly repugnant.

 

“As a movement we are shocked and appalled to see an incident such as this,” Mr Lennon said.

 

“The trade union movement stands in solidarity with the Jewish community and other faiths, ethnicities and community groups associated with the Sydney Alliance in condemning this attack.

 

“Australia is a diverse, open and peaceful society. These are values we intend to promote and defend.

 

“This incident is deeply concerning for trade unionists across NSW. We condemn it and reaffirm our complete repudiation of any form of racism and anti-seimtism.’
