Peter and JudyOn 15 February 2013, the Veterans’ Club had its first meeting of the year. This was also the first meeting since the passing of the Veterans’ Club President, Brian Thomas, a stalwart of the TWU and the man who this regular column is dedicated to.

TWU Veterans Peter Cooley and Steve Whittick have been elected President and Vice-President of the Veterans’ Club respectively. We are also pleased to report that Brian’s widow, Judy Thomas, has been elected the Veterans’ Club Women’s representative.

The Veterans’ Club is open to all TWU members who have retired from the transport industry. The Veterans’ Club plays a vital role in TWU campaigning and has taken the lead in the TWU’s retail campaign against Coles. Its members were also instrumental in the labour movement’s campaign against the Howard Government’s WorkChoices legislation. This included a march through the city that received widespread support and media coverage.
