Meet Your Local Delegate – Michael De Meo
Why did you become involved in the union? Before STA, I was a Factory Manager in the furniture industry. I had always considered myself a team player and helped my fellow work colleagues. I believe that having 100% completion in my production required a successful and strong team who worked together. I think Port Botany is the best Depot in STA and I consider my fellow work colleagues like a family, as I spend 12 to 14 hours of the day at work. I believe in a fair workplace where everyone is treated equally. And besides, who wouldn’t help family if they were in trouble?
2. What are your hobbies and interests? Going fishing, soccer (Italy to win the next world cup), taking my kids to soccer and watching them play, spending time with my family and helping my kids with their homework.
3. Who would you like to have dinner with (dead or alive) and why? My wife and children because life is short and every moment together is like gold.
