CODE 2, VOL 30, NO 47# : 19 december 2016

Christmas and New Year

The traditional annual holiday season is upon us.

This period of the year means different things to different people.

For our members, it can mean work and separation from family and friends. Particularly those working shift work or across the public holidays.

I encourage all members to look out for each other, especially across this time of the year.

Remember, help is there if you need it.

I wish every member a safe and happy Christmas and New Year. I look forward to continuing the fight together in 2017.
