More than 200 past and present QTU members, employees and supporters came together in the Brisbane Room at Brisbane City Hall on 9 January to mark the 125 years to the day since our Union's birth.

The function was held to celebrate the proud history of the QTU, which began with the inaugural conference in Brisbane on 9 January 1889.

Speakers included QTU President Kevin Bates, QTU General Secretary Graham Moloney and Senator Sue Boyce, who delivered a message from Prime Minister Tony Abbott.
