LE TT E RS TO TH E E DITO R

Dear Editor I am writing to say thank you to the union that I have proudly been a member of since 1967. Next week I retire and I believe that my employer could learn valuable lessons from my union who sent me two personalised, hand signed letters, both thanking me and congratulating me on my work in education. My years of service were accurately quoted and acknowledged and I felt valued. By contrast, I insisted on an exit interview with my employer, conducted in a school, where it is kept. State Office is not interested in my thoughts and feelings after 51 years of service. I also received, an electronically generated and signed letter reminding me that should I wish to return, not to expect favoured treatment. My years of service and contributions as a leader and teacher in schools did not warrant comment, but I was reminded that I

had made contribution (no detail) to an excellent education system. Sincere thanks Leah York for being a compassionate and active face of our union. n Jude Hines
