Meredith Farmer

Meredith has worked at the AEU (Australian Education Union) for the past 9 years. Prior to that she was a Drama and Humanities teacher and leader in public schools for 20 years (mostly secondary but some primary). 

She has undertaken various roles at the AEU ranging from organising union members in worksites (schools, preschool and TAFE) to managing individual and workplace disputes as an industrial organiser. She has been acting Women’s Officer for the past 6 months and undertook this role for 3 months of last year. Most of the AEU’s members are women, and many are insecurely or underemployed. The AEU also covers lower paid classifications of school service officers, Early Childhood Workers and Aboriginal Education Workers. Meredith is a passionate advocate of working women. 

On a personal note, Meredith lives with her partner Dan and 2 “adult” daughters, one who is 22 and is currently undertaking her Masters (research) in Philosophy and another, aged 19 who is studying Early Childhood Education. Their furry family members are Archie the Border Collie and a feline called Antigone!  

Meredith also brings with her the experience of parenting an amazing young person who transitioned their gender identity in the past few years.
