Biographical history

Don McHugh was ACT Organiser for the NSW Branch of the Australian Builders Labourers Federation (BLF) from 1964-1969. He was the first Secretary of the ACT Branch of the Australian Building Construction Employees and Builders Labourers Federation (ABCE&BLF) when it was established in 1973. McHugh was President of the Trades and Labour Council of the ACT from 1966-1969. In January and February 1976 McHugh and the ACT Branch executive of the ABCE&BLF decided to amalgamate with the ACT Branch of the Building Workers' Industrial Union of Australia (BWIU). The Federal Council of the ABCE&BLF opposed the amalgamation, intervened in the ACT Branch and appointed Peter O'Dea as Branch Secretary. By the end of the year the amalgamation had broken down and McHugh remained with the ACT Branch of the BWIU as an organiser.
