Penrith. First woman to hold position

Rita Mallia, of Penrith, and recently elected NSW president of CFMEU’s construction division, is the first woman to hold a senior position within the Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU) in NSW. The main trade union in construction, forestry and forest products, mining and energy products has had women hold senior positions before, but never in NSW, until now. After studying law and economics at Sydney University, Ms Mallia worked in immigration law and then arrived at the CFMEU as a legal officer 15 years ago.
