Right across Victoria and Tasmania the ASU has terrific workplace delegates.
They support members with workplace issues, campaign in workplaces for better working conditions, and bargain for a better deal for their workmates. Each of our delegates plays an important role in our union that we greatly value.
However, some delegates go the extra mile supporting their workmates and building the strength of our union. And we think it is important to recognise their work and celebrate the contribution they make to their workmates, our union, and the whole labour movement.
Each year at our annual Delegates Conference, the ASU recognises outstanding delegates with the Darrell Cochrane Delegate of the Year and the Johanna Lytton Young Delegate of the Year awards. We also recognise the work of an outstanding OH&S Rep with the Occupational Health & Safety Representative of the Year award.
We will be calling for nominations from ASU members for these prestigious awards soon. So if there is a delegate or OH&S Rep at your workplace who has been outstanding, keep an eye out for the formal nomination process.
