Delegate Profile – Georgie Dimitriou

31 January 2024

I’m Georgie Dimitriou and I’m an ASU delegate in Benalla, in the North East Regional Region of VicRoads.

I joined the ASU as VicRoads was being privatised. This transition has been very difficult for staff.

My Region did not have a Delegate, and management were making the rules up as they went, so I decided to put my hand up.

I have had several wins with the ASU, and they have empowered me to step out of my comfort zone and have those challenging conversations with management that most of us are afraid to have..

I’ve learnt to deal with confrontation – to step back from the emotion in the heat of the moment and to be level headed when trying to make a difference to the workplace for our members.

The ASU works… and they work hard for all of us at VicRoads.

Thanks to the Union – they have helped us make such a difference in our work place and their ongoing support and availability has been great.

I encourage members to think about becoming a delegate – it’s very rewarding.
