One Sydney-based Western Union employee has been recognized by his colleagues and Western Union leadership for his service as a volunteer firefighter in New South Wales. “It is heartening to see employees take action to fight the fires in Australia, and we are so proud to stand behind Mr. Daly for serving on the ground to combat the devastating fires. Thank you for being a hero in our Western Union community,” offered Western Union CEO, Hikmet Ersek.
