GSU was born in 1999 from a merger of the Union of Public Works Employees and Supply and Services Union.
For GSU 20th anniversary, it is important to highlight the invaluable contribution of the elected GSU leaders. Their commitment and dedication has allowed them to fight many battles to ensure that the rights of our members are respected.
At the GSU 2019 Local President's Conference, Mark Brunell, GSU's first National President, said, "Workplaces are changing, but the issues are the same." The elected GSU leaders are the artisans of today's world of work. Even if others have paved the way, we must remain vigilant and united because there is never anything acquired.
The Government Services Union has been working for 20 years to ensure that employers respect the rights of our members and will continue to do so for years to come.
