Torres Strait Island Regional Council Delegate Election – Have Your Say

Local Authorities June 8, 2021

As you may be aware, your workplace delegate, Tony Wynen, is about to step down from his role. We’d like to thank Tony for his commitment to advancing the industrial interests of members at Torres Strait Island Regional Council (TSIRC).

Kathy Cochran has indicated that she is still keen to continue as a Workplace Delegate, but due to Tony stepping down and our growing Union membership at TSIRC, we now have two vacant Delegate spots available.

Our Union will now facilitate an election for two new Workplace Delegates. The candidates are:

  • Kylie Sturges (Corporate Governance)
  • David Lennie (Fleet Services)
  • Vincent Pynaker (Engineering Services)
  • Peter Whittington (Engineering – Water & Waste)

Members of The Services Union should expect an e-mail outlining the voting process. If you do not receive this email by Wednesday 9th June, or if you have any queries or concerns, please contact organiser Jim Oliver via

The ballot will open on Wednesday 9th June and close on Wednesday 23rd June.

Remember, our Union and your Workplace Delegates can only enforce Certified Agreement and Award entitlements on behalf of our members. Only members get to vote in Workplace Delegate elections. If you work with someone who is not yet a member, remind them that joining is easy at
