Rolled gold union man Bruce Hill has called time and retired from the workforce.
The widely-respected Latrobe Valley Bus Lines (LVBL) driver has been a steadfast TWU member for 43 years after joining the Union on 14 October 1975.
Generations of union members have fought hard for the things that make Australia such a great place to live – and Bruce was always willing to provide valuable support for Union campaigns and to help fellow members in the yard.
Branch Secretary John Berger said Bruce’s hard-work and dedication as a TWU member, in helping to protect jobs and improve wages, conditions and health and safety standards over such a long period of time, was widely-admired.
“The Union would not be in the position it is today without members like Bruce who stand side-by-side in solidarity with other members, year after year,” John said.
“We salute you Bruce for your support and backing throughout the past four decades and wish you all the very best in retirement.”
Thanks also goes to TWU Delegate Bruce Mills and his colleagues who helped organise a get-together this week to celebrate his career and to thank him for his service.
