PAYING RESPECTS TO UFU INDUSTRIAL OFFICER GEORGIE KIMMEL
As members are aware UFU Industrial Officer, Georgie Kimmel, passed away recently and her funeral will take place tomorrow, Friday 2 November 2018.
Those who had any involvement with Georgie be they colleagues, union members or employer representatives have remembered Georgie as a fierce advocate for workers’ rights with meticulous attention to detail and persistence to achieve outcomes.
In recognition of Georgie’s work not only for UFU members but in the union movement more broadly, a large union presence will be in attendance to pay respects to Georgie. To help show our respects, UFU members have been invited to undertake some formalities during the service, and will also be forming a Guard of Honour for the departure of the Hearse.
To mark Georgie’s passing, UFU respectfully encourages members to attend this important occasion and also to participate in forming the Guard of Honour to ensure a fitting demonstration of the regard in which Georgie is held by our union.
Those who wish to partake in the guard of honour are respectfully asked to wear station wear including: straight-leg pants, long-sleeved shirt and peak cap.
UFU pins will be available at the venue.
