As a recently elected delegate at Tenants Victoria, Katie Valenta has a very clear purpose: ‘I want to build a sense of unity in my workplace, and to ensure that all workers feel confident to raise workplace issues and advocate for better conditions’. With her delegate training scheduled for early 2021, Katie is already putting her own spin on the role, saying ‘I want to bring a sense of compassion and understanding to the role of delegate.’
Training and supporting the work of delegates is one way that the ASU branch helps you and your co-workers deal with issues and improve conditions.
If you’re a delegate and haven’t yet attended training, go to: Delegate Training – ASU Victoria & Tasmania (asuvictas.com.au).
