Recognition

In 2017 the AMIEU recognised Kerryn Robinson a meat worker at Coles Bacchus Marsh for maintaining her commitment to unionism for 25 years.

Don's in Altona are closing this year. The representatives of the workers from Don who have been on the Committee of Management have been committed to the AMIEU for more than 25 years.

The workers in Don have had good conditions because they have seen the necessity to stick together and stand up for their rights.

On 20 May 2011 the union recognised that the commitment of Joe Marmara and Michael Oravec to the AMIEU.

Michael Oravec had been Vice President of the Victorian Branch of the AMIEU since 2001. On 8 December 2011 he sent a resignation. Read his message here.

9 December 2011 the AMIEU held a Christmas lunch following the Committee of Management meeting.

At this celebration a number of members were presented with Certificates of Recognition by Graham Bird, Secretary, who is retiring at the end of 2011.
