Gerard Hayes

In the short time I have been leading the HSU, we have begun the fight against the NSW state government’s budget cuts and job losses, we have introduced Journey Insurance to protect members on the way to and from work, we have begun the process to reduce members’ fees, restructured the staffing of the union, put on additional organisers and industrial staff to better service the members and we have ignited campaigns across the state to change the way the health and aged are sectors are managed. But we can only make a difference when we stand together and together we will rebuild this union.

Gerard has been visiting members in their workplaces and taken opportunities in the media to push our important issues– job security, ambulance rosters, health and safety and understaffing. These campaigns are why people join the union – to be protected in the workplace.

“Together we will rebuild this union.”
