“I work at Crown in F&B, and have been a union member for two and a half years. I was inspired to become a delegate four months ago after personally experiencing how important a supportive delegate can be when I had some issues at work. I want to help people like I was helped.

"Over the past couple of days we’ve all been learning how to support members during grievance procedures, and it’s been great. I’ve learned a lot – especially from other delegates on the course, who are sharing their experiences of representing casino workers over the years.

“Although I’m just starting out, my confidence has grown a lot from being involved in my ECC. At first I was quiet in the meetings, but now I’m really outspoken about making positive changes in Food & Bev. I’m actually looking forward to our next EA, too – I want F&B workers to get more recognition for the hard work we do.

"That’s why everyone at Crown should join our union – we’ve already achieved so much, but if we can build a bigger, stronger union we’ll be even more powerful. Get involved today!”
