One of the pioneers of virtual trade unionism in Australia, the CEPU's Dan Dwyer, is taking up a prestigious international posting.
Dwyer, who has produced the movement's longest-running e-bulletin, has been appointed Telecom Director, Asia Pacific Region Union Network International as the. I have accepted the position and will resign from my employed position within CEPU.
The appointment comes after 16 years in the local trade union movement representing Telecom officers through a series of amalgamations.
His first bulletin was sent on 22 May 1996, and he reckons he would have sent about 250 since then (making Workers Online look like a pup!)
Dwyer says that in his new role, he will continue the struggle of employees in the Telecom areas for better and safer workplaces.
