Maritime Union of Australia National Secretary Paddy Crumlin was elected President of the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) at the global union body’s world congress in Mexico City.

The ITF represents more than 4.6 million members of 760 trade unions worldwide and the president’s role is to help hold the organisation to account between these congresses, which set its policy for the next four years.

Crumlin is the 22nd person to hold the position.

"I’m excited to be able to take on this new role and play my part in moving the work of the ITF, its hundreds of affiliated unions and their millions of members forward through the implementation of a comprehensive organising program focused on trade union regeneration and revitalisation," Crumlin says.
