Vote 1 Noel Holt for Newcastle

Download the SEP Newcastle How to Vote

Noel Holt, 59, is married with four adult children and 10 grandchildren. He was born and raised on the central coast. A Telstra worker for 41 years, Noel was active in opposing the various Accords signed by the Hawke and Keating Labor governments with the ACTU and employer groups.  Elected sub-branch president of the CEPU in the 1970s and NSW branch councillor in the 1980s, Noel joined the SEP in 1996 after many bitter experiences with the role of the trade unions. As an SEP member Noel fought among Telstra workers against the policies of downsizing and privatisation presided over by the trade unions. Over the past decade Noel has campaigned widely in the Newcastle area among workers and young people, raising the necessity for a political break from the nationalist program of Labor and the unions and the adoption of a socialist and internationalist perspective.
