The launch of ETU Active

Bruce Fan - Tuesday, August 21, 2018

Dear Honorary Member, 

I write to invite you to the launch of ETU Active, our new organisation for retired ETU activists.

ETU Active is one of the most exciting initiatives our union has taken in recent years.

The concept came from Honorary Members who told us they want to make an ongoing contribution to the ETU’s campaigns.

‘We have the experience, the skills and the fire-in-the-belly: give us a role’ – that is the message from many of our retired members.

ETU Active is, as the name suggests, a campaigning group that will allow our Honorary Members to play an active support role in the union’s key campaigns, whether industrial or political.

We are confident ETU Active will strengthen the ETU’s capacity to campaign effectively for our members and the future of our trade.

If that interests you, please try and attend the launch of ETU Active, where you’ll hear ETU Life Member John Robertson and Unions NSW Secretary Mark Morey.

Please RSVP to or on 9267 4844. If you are unable to attend but want to stay in touch with ETU Active please also let us know so that keep you informed of ETU Active news and events.

I look forward to seeing all of you, if not at the launch, at our Honorary Members luncheons later this year.

In solidarity

Dave McKinley

ETU Secretary
