The results are in for the 2021 National Executive elections.
We’re delighted to welcome back two long-serving members of the E tū whānau.
Angelique Kerr – Central region representative
Angelique served as the central region representative on E tū’s National Executive for the last three terms, including chair of the Audit and Risk Committee.
She works as at New Zealand’s Parliamentary Service in executive support and as a researcher.
“I want to continue to focus on ensuring that our union invests more in not only recruiting more members, but also training and empowering our union members to be union leaders in their workplace and communities.
“Our goals as a union are still focussed on growth, reach and capability. We need to continue to grow our union, even during these challenging times.”
Nikki Twine – Southern region representative
Nikki served as the southern region representative on E tū’s National Executive last term. She has been an E tū delegate for 20 years and also sits on the E tū Aviation Industry Council.
Nikki works as cabin crew for Mt Cook Airline.
“I’m driven by a strong belief in fairness for ‘all’, always being approachable, level-headed, and committed to my various E tū roles.
“2020/21 has seen many of us having to rethink, re-evaluate, and restructure our future. Our union continually needs to do the same to stay relevant and modern for our current and future membership without losing focus on our purpose and values: integrity, manaakitanga, aspiration, respect, and accountability.”
