Gerardine (Ged) Kearney commenced as ACTU President on 1 July 2010, and is the third woman to hold the position. Prior to this Ged was the Federal Secretary of the Australian Nursing Federation from April 2008 and had been an elected official with the ANF since 1997.
Ged believes we must challenge the notion that unions should not just be concerned with the experience of people at work but they should be advocates for change to improve all aspects of Australians lives and under her leadership Ged says more people now join unions than leave them.
Ged’s ambition as ACTU President is to build respect from political leaders and the broad community for the values of fairness and the role played by unions in delivering social change.
