Craig Sheehan - Candidate for Hume

I am nominating to be a delegate so I can fight for the rights of workers in our community. I live in Appin and have been working on the wharves for 22 years. My wife is a primary school teacher and we are proud to raise our kids in this part of the world. But I want to see our party focus more on regional communities like ours and ensure our kids have the best.

I am passionate about TAFE and public education funding, a real transition to renewables and keeping public assets in public hands. I have been a Maritime Union of Australia Member my entire working life and want Labor to keep up the fight for workers. I want to see economic equality for all people and strong rights for people at work.

I was recently appointed as President of the Wollondilly Branch and I want to see the party listen to the voices of rank and file members like us. At Conference, I will fight for reforms to our internal democracy that will see local branch members have more say in how our party is run.
