Kelly Cotter

State Sector committee convenor

From WorkSafe, representing the Social Support cluster.

I am currently a National Delegate for WorkSafe New Zealand based in Rotorua, we are the Health and Safety regulator for New Zealand and our role is to provide health and safety leadership, education and enforcement.

I’ve completed my Diploma in HR and more recently completed the Organiser Traineeship with PSA and will utilise the skills I gained through this in our sector.

I have been highly involved with the union at a National level due to my commitment and passion for worker rights and ensuring our members have good working conditions, pay and feeling valued.

I look forward to meeting and engaging with members across the sector to find out what matters to them most and advancing their interests. One of my priorities for the sector is to have increased engagement between our committee and the delegates we represent as a whole.
