Dear Pip and Lisa,
My name is [first name], I'm a member of ANMF (Vic Branch).
Like many nurses and midwives I'm very concerned about pollution and climate change and the impacts that these have on people's health, and I'm proud of all the work ANMF (Vic Branch) does to address these issues.
However I'm very concerned that our default super funds HESTA and First State Super are still investing in coal, oil and gas companies that are creating enormous amounts of pollution and causing people harm.
I understand that the Health Services Union Victoria No. 4 Branch have written to HESTA and First State Super asking them to divest from fossil fuels, and they're happy for their letters to be publicly available (they can be viewed at www.healthyfutures.net.au/divestment_stories).
Would it be possible for ANMF (Vic Branch) to also write to HESTA and First State Super and ask them to divest from fossil fuels?
Thanks very much, I'll look forward to hearing from you.
[first name] [last name]
