No longer in full-time employment? You can still be a union activist.
Vintage Reds gives unionists who have retired from full-time employment a place to be involved in campaigning using the skills acquired over a lifetime. Vintage Reds members aim to play an important role in supporting the struggles for worker’s rights, especially when the union movement and retirees are under sustained pressure from the present federal government.
Vintage Reds are affiliated with UnionsACT, and through them, UnionsNSW and the ACTU, but are otherwise not aligned with any political party.
The group was officially launched by ACTU President Ged Kearney at the Unions ACT offices on 15 February 2014.
Vintage Reds meet on the 3rd Tuesday of the month (except January and December) at the Quality Hotel, next to the Dickson Tradies’ Club, at 11.00 am.
All retired trade union members who consider the role of unionism in Australia to be an important part of the democratic process are encouraged to join the Vintage Reds!
