HE / HIM
BACHELOR OF EDUCATION (SECONDARY)
I am a committed student, artist, unionist, writer, and political campaigner. I would like to reform the student union in the face of growing student poverty and course-cutting so that it can be an active vehicle for change.
I bring five years of union and community organising experience, primarily in land-rights and worker struggle. As a union representative in the workplace, I developed keen negotiation skills. I enjoy creating democratic structures for member voices.
The University Management big talks about Inclusion -- yet structurally is letting its Students, Teachers, Support Staff and education starve. Cutting Courses. Cutting Campuses. Our UNSA should become structurally more akin to a Union, rather than a business or charity, to fight for our regions future as a political Voice. The University Management has already restructured UNSA to dampen student control of student affairs.
- Push constitutional reform so that management can no longer meddle.
- Fight for all of our SSAF Funding to be redirected to the Union for student initiatives
- Push for an Advocacy and Campaigns Unit and Committee within UNSA to keep the Uni accountable and give students voice
- Push for an Environmental Officer for SRC
