DELEGATE OF THE MONTH: KYLIE

 

Meet Kylie from Woolworths Gosford - she's our Delegate of the Month for December!

 

Kylie became a Delegate a few months ago, after being an SDA member for six years. 

We asked Kylie about her new role as a Delegate and here's what she had to say...

 

Why did you become a Delegate?

 

I became a delegate to help our staff with any issues they may have and to improve working conditions, as well as being a support for them.

 

Why is recruitment important?

 

Recruitment is important so that we can support all members of staff, grow a strong union community within the store and build rapport with managers and staff.

 

What campaigns have you been involved with and why are they important? 

 

Because I am only relatively new to being a delegate, I haven’t been involved in any campaigns yet but I am looking forward to getting in and getting everybody involved for their rights!

 

What has been your most notable achievement in your workplace? 

 

In the last three months I have recruited 11 new members in store.

 

What have you enjoyed about being a Delegate most so far? 

I love being approached by members and being able to inform them of their rights at work.

 

What do you aim to achieve in your workplace in the next 12 months? 

 

I hope to recruit more, and increase density in store by 25%, and make sure people are aware of what the union stands for and how much we help!

 

What do you get most out of the role as a Delegate? 

 

 I just love helping people.
