Cody Jensen

Cody Jensen is a union organiser based in Boorloo/Perth. After growing up in the Northern Goldfields in Western Australia, Cody worked for thirteen years as a railway track welder across the Nullarbor and Pilbara. 

His experience as a Rail, Tram and Bus Union (RTBU) delegate led him to become an organiser with the Construction Forestry, Mining, Maritime and Energy Union (CFMEU) where he was assigned to Perth's Metronet project and traffic controllers due to his knowledge of railway construction. These two areas have been largely unorganised until now.
