What is your occupation?

Centre Manager

What is the best thing about your job? 

The people I work with are great. The clients we help as a team  and that I meet are very interesting and some have great stories they love talking to you about. My job is never boring, very busy but interesting. Constantly learning new skills.

Why did you join the union?

I have always been in a union since I started work. I believe that we need to be in a union to safeguard our working conditions and provide advice and support to us regarding any questions and concerns we have regarding our pay and conditions.

During enterprise agreements unions have the resources and staff with the skills and knowledge  to negotiate a fair agreement for their members.
