A message from TWU (Vic/Tas Branch)

Branch Secretary John Berger

There is no part of our economy which is essentially more important, not only intrinsically, but in terms of the efficient functioning of the rest of the economy, than the transport sector. From the roads, ports, warehouses and skies, and to our cities and towns, the transport and freight industry contributes significantly to the livelihood of both everyday Australians and our national prosperity. As a Union, we take our responsibilities very seriously in protecting the wages and conditions of members who work in this most diverse and vibrant industry. We are also always striving to improve the way we represent our members and have organisers, delegates and OH&S representatives constantly working to improve membership density and safety.

In Solidarity, John Berger (Branch Secretary)
