Just a few days after the TPI Federation President’s outright lie to the Royal Commissioners’ at her appearance on 3rd December 2021 (refer below), where the TPI Federation President had conveniently forgotten that TPI Victoria had resigned from the TPI Federation in 2020, in part, due to previous lies, what does the TPI Federation President do, she goes and approaches a number of Social Centres of TPI Victoria Inc. in an effort to coerce them to become the TPI Federation representatives in Victoria. Of course, these Social Centres told the TPI Federation President politely, where she could go with her proposal.
What a hide has this TPI Federation President, again running amok and no doubt again without any approval from the TPI Federation Directors as to what she was up to. All this has done for the President, Management Committee and membership of TPI Victoria is to reinforce that they made the right decision in withdrawing from this debacle of a TPI Federation under its current leadership and management. The fact still remains that the TPI Federation President lied to the Royal Commissioners on 3rd December.
MS McCABE: That’s correct. The TPI Federation has associations in each state and the ACT. Some states are big enough ‑‑ for example, WA and New South Wales ‑‑ to have some paid staff, but the vast majority are all volunteers. It is based on membership fees for providing the services that we do.
When will the Federation Directors rein in this TPI Federation President who is destroying the brand name of the TPI Federation and ensuring that TPIs no longer want to be part of this TPI Federation that is a total mess and still being run by an illegal Constitution. Do not hold your breath, they have done nothing in the past and no doubt will do nothing in the future.
Take care and persevere,
