Historical information
Pin awarded to, and worn by, union delegates/job representatives of the Australian Nursing Federation (ANF). Job representatives, or 'job reps', represent nurses and midwives and the union in the workplace. They provide information and advice on employee rights and conditions and referrals to the ANF when appropriate.

The Royal Australian Nursing Federation became the Australian Nursing Federation (ANF) in 1989, and then became the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation in 2013, suggesting this pin is from the 1990s or early 2000s.
