Lee Thomas is the Federal Secretary of the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (ANMF), the second largest, and fastest growing union in Australia.
Lee’s priority for the ANMF is to ensure that it is one of the strongest industrial, political, professional and campaigning unions in Australia. Membership growth in the private and aged care sectors and increasing members power are paramount to Lee and the ANMF.
Lee commenced nursing as a personal care attendant in aged care and completed her general nurse and midwifery education in Adelaide. Lee also holds a Bachelor of Nursing and a neonatology certificate, is a registered midwife, and is currently studying a law degree.
Prior to taking on her current role Lee was ANMF’s Assistant Federal Secretary and served as Branch Secretary of the Australian Nursing Federation (SA Branch) for eight years, where she focused on membership growth and enterprise bargaining across all sectors.
