Giovanna Bonelli

Rail, Tram & Bus Union delegate

Giovanna Bonelli is a Rail, Tram and Bus Union delegate in Sydney and a participant in the 2018 enterprise bargaining campaign which saw the Fair Work Commission rule the NSW train workers’ strike illegal, despite the union jumping through every legal hoop and enjoying mass support. This ruling exposed the extent of anti-strike laws in Australia, and raised the question of how unions can defy and defeat these laws.
