ACC, Representing the Social Support Cluster
Soon after graduating with a Degree in Social Science, from the University of Cape Town, I entered the workforce and joined the South African Municipal Workers' Union. During the Anti-Apartheid Movement, I rallied with workers to change the oppressive government, which eventually occurred in 1991. I believe that unions have a huge role to play to influence change in the workplace as well as society, by advocating for the rights of workers and their families.
It was a natural progression for me to join the PSA, when I came to New Zealand and took up the role of Injury Prevention Consultant at ACC, in 2008. In the same year I became a workplace delegate as well as a Health and Safety Representative.
As a Social Support Cluster delegate on the State Sector Committee, I strive to advocate for members on issues affecting them and will work towards achieving the strategic goals of the PSA.
