It has been a hard road for many former auto employees, but within six months of his departure, Henry found a new job – and a good one – as a bus driver for CDC Geelong.

After such a traumatic experience, Henry obviously understands the importance of solidarity and the wage, security and safety protections that belonging to a strong union offers.
