Jess Rogers – CEPU SA Assistant Branch Secretary and Industrial Officer
mobile: 0408 647 034
Jess began with us in 2009 as a PEER trainee and progressed through various roles within the Union before becoming the Industrial Officer for the CEPU SA Branch, and now recently elected unopposed as the Branch Assistant Secretary.
More recently the CEPU SA has seen a dramatic increase in wage theft amongst our members and Jess has tackled this head on, lodging over $171,000 in underpayment claims in 2018 and conducting pecuniary penalty hearings to ensure bad bosses are held accountable.
Through her experience advocating for members and developing strategies to ensure members get what they are entitled to, she has gained broad knowledge across all of the industries our members work in.
Jess is strongly committed to the underlying principles of unionism, social justice, community development and equity. Equal opportunity issues are her particular speciality. One of her important initiatives is promoting and encouraging women’s participation in the CEPU. This focus has seen a significant increase in our women members’ participation in our Union.
