“At the worst of times we see the best of Australians.”

“These are the words of Federal Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese as he thanks Council and Energy workers for their hard work throughout the flood devastated Northern Rivers region. As USU General Secretary I acknowledge and thank Mr Albanese and Federal Member for Richmond Justine Elliot for recognising the hard work that USU local government and Energy members are doing to help the flooded communities of the Northern Rivers,” said Graeme Kelly OAM.

“As Mr Albanese says in this video our members are heroes. I am immensely proud of our members and the vital role they play in helping to restore services to the flood ravaged area. Many politicians have visited the area in recent times however not many of them take the time to recognise the work of USU members. I applaud Mr Albanese for recognising their hard work and commitment,” said Graeme.
