The AMIEU represents workers employed in poultry processing, abattoirs, boning rooms, retail and supermarket meat rooms, cold storage, milk, cheese, smallgoods manufacturing and pet food manufacturing.

AMIEU, NSW announces the retirement of our 2 Top Officials, Charlie Donzow as the Branch Secretary and Peter Usher as the President.  Charlie Donzow joined our Union in Oct 1975 from Riverstone Abattoir and Peter Usher in May 1977 from Orange Abattoir.

The Committee of Management endorsed Ms. Patricia Fernandez as Charlie’s successor and expresses its sincere confidence in her abilities to assume Charlie’s role as Branch Secretary.

We wish Mr. and Mrs. Donzow as well as Mr & Mrs Usher as they enjoy their retirement together.
