Farewell and Thank You, Robin
On Sunday 3rd April we hosted a Farewell BBQ to say thank you to Belmont Delegate Robin O’Donoghue.
The BBQ was well-attended, with NSW Branch Secretary Alex Claassens coming down to thank Robin personally for the value and commitment she’s brought to the RTBU during not only her time as a Delegate, but as a member who has enriched the union from the beginning.
Members took up a collection to purchase flowers, chocolates, and other goodies for Robin to enjoy.
It was a great turnout with many laughs, memories, and experiences shared. In particular, the time Robin came down to Sydney on her own holiday time to give members the rundown on privatisation, what it meant for workers, and what we can do as union members to fight it tooth and nail.
It was fitting farewell for an absolute powerhouse of a person. A simple “Thank you” doesn’t entirely encompass how grateful the union was to have Robin as a Delegate. We wish her all the success in her next endeavour, and we’ll be backing her all the way!
