Rod Donald: passionate and tireless advocate
“New Zealand has lost a passionate and tireless advocate for sustainable development and social justice” CTU president Ross Wilson said today.
“Rod was a key influence in bringing the Green Party and the union movement closer together and we have worked very closely on many issues over the past four years” Ross Wilson said.
“His working life is a testimony to his commitment to the values and principles he so strongly believed in” he said “From an early age he lived those values and principles.”
“I am shocked and deeply saddened by Rod’s sudden death, and I extend sympathy to his family and colleagues.” Ross Wilson said.
“I also acknowledge with grateful thanks his very significant contribution to improving the lives of New Zealanders today and in the future.”
