For those who haven't yet met him, Ian Richardson is HACSU's new organiser based in our Launceston office to cover for Kristen while she's away enjoying maternity leave.
"I have over eight years of experience as a HACSU Delegate and three years as a Health & Safety Rep at the Ashley Youth Detention Centre. Having worked in the public service for the last ten years has given me a keen understanding of some of the problems members face on a daily basis. I have a good record of getting positive results for members in regard to staffing and procedural issues and I'm always willing to engage in dispute resolution and mediation attempts.
My areas of expertise are workplace health and safety, in which I've completed Diploma studies, and giving a voice to those who feel intimidated or uncertain about speaking up, and I'm looking forward to working with delegates to create a safer and more rewarding work environment for all.
