Commentary on the AWU Members' Welfare Association No 1 Account
I'm going to try something out here - I've done a little audio commentary to go with the 12 pages in the PDF file below - that is the pages of bank statements for the AWU Members Welfare Association No 1 Account. Please let me know if it worked or if you just couldn't follow it - open up the PDF in a separate tab then click on the audioboo and you should be away.
I hope you'll get the sense of the cash flows in the account - how it started as a repository for union official's payroll deductions to pay for the election expenses. How it paid out $17,000 to Town Mode and several cash cheques, and how Wilson somehow convinced large corporations to pay about $180,000 in cheques that were banked into the account. Finally, you'll see the cheques that returned all of the corporations' monies back to them.
