Heartfelt condolences to Brett Quinn’s family

July 31, 2019

The AWU is supporting the Gordonvale Mill community following the recent tragedy.

On behalf of the entire AWU, we offer our most heartfelt condolences to the family of Gordonvale Mill worker Brett Quinn who lost his life in a workplace accident on 28th July 2019 in Little Mulgrave.

Brett was a long standing AWU Member and hard-working member of his community.

He was a second-generation sugar mill employee and an AWU Member for over thirty years, who will be sorely missed by his family, friends and work mates.

Brett Quinn was fatally electrocuted after a crane collided with overhead powerlines and Trevor Cole is seriously injured after running to help Brett. Trevor is currently in an induced coma with multiple injuries to this body and expected to be hospitalised for the next 3 months.

Trevor is a father with a wife and three children. His wife and son have had to fly over 1500kms from their regional home to Brisbane Hospital, while Trevor is in an induced coma.

We’ll keep offering every support to them and their families while they recover in hospital.

AWU officials are on the ground to support all workers through this time and we’ll continue to work with workers and MSF Sugar to identify what went wrong and make sure that it never happens again.
