Members celebrate 25 years
Every year in May our union takes the opportunity to recognise a significant part of our membership: those who have been members for 25 years. This year's 25 year members were recognised on a celebration day held 13 May 2015.
In reaching this significant milestone, these members have made an immeasurable contribution to the prosperity of our union and continue to ensure our union is a strong voice for employees in our sector.
Members recognised with 25 years of membership receive a commemorative badge and certificate honouring their commitment and loyalty. Members are also honoured in Chapter morning teas to celebrate their contribution to our union.
Founding the 25 year member recognition
Many members who received the initial 25 year recognition badges in 2012 had been members beyond 25 years. As union records were only computerised in 1986, this was our union’s first practical opportunity to recognise their length of membership.
With the recognition structure now in place, our union continues to honour and recognise those members who joined year by year.
