ICYMI - A Liberal MP accidentally sent 1000 of her election signs to the rival Electrical Trades Union on Thursday.... so the head of the ETU's Victorian branch showed off their new decorations.

LNP hq just delivered 1000 @SHendersonMP corflutes to ETU Geelong office. What should we do with them? #auspol

On problem ETU Victoria's Troy Gray is... well, he's absurdly hot.

@MarkDiStef Ridiculously Photogenic Electrical Trades Union Guy


@MarkDiStef The thirst is real. Hellooooooo, ETU Guy.

Next thing Australia's unions were hyping him up with more photos of hot Union Troy.

@MarkDiStef yeah Troy is a dreamboat #babesoftrades @ETUVIC @ETU_national

Yep. Rugged.

.@CFMEU @MaritimeUnionAU @MarkDiStef @ETUVIC the rugged face of current affairs

What's he looking at?

@ETU_national @ETUVIC @MarkDiStef @CFMEU @MaritimeUnionAU The flag says 'fight' but the eyes say 'hold me'

Even the Maritime Unions of Australia were throwing in a pun.

@MarkDiStef He floats our boats @ETUVIC @ETU_national

Is this the best viral campaign to get Australians to join their union? Probably.
