Interested in serving on your Industry Council?

Every two years the National Executive appoints delegates to serve on our eight Industry Councils. It is now calling for expressions of interest from delegates who wish to be considered for these positions.

Industry Council members represent the members in their industries, advise the National Executive on key industry issues and help implement plans and strategies to grow the membership.

Appointment is on experience, background and knowledge of the industry, union service, seniority, and other criteria set by the National Executive.

If this sounds like you please e-mail E tū Industries Director at by 4pm on Friday 24 November with your name, your industry, and your relevant experience and knowledge.
