Sam Wainwright - biographical info

Sam Wainwright
Hilton Ward Resident, Community Campaigner

Hello, I live in O’Connor with my partner Janet and work at the Fremantle container terminal. I’m have been an advocate for workers rights,environmental sustainability and community democracy for around 20 years.

I’m active in the Community Solidarity group which has helped workers and communities fighting for their rights.

Being a wharfie, I’m a member of the Maritime Union of Australia, where I’ve been a workplace delegate and edit the union’s newspaper.

I’m the Convener of the Fremantle branch of the Socialist Alliance and was a Candidate in the recent Fremantle by-election.

These activities have given me skills to get things done and to help people get active in their own community to make change.
