CFMEU mourns loss of Labor MP Peta Murphy

CFMEU Media Release

The Construction, Forestry, Maritime Employees Union (CFMEU) has paid tribute to Labor MP Peta Murphy who has died, aged 50.

Ms Murphy died at home on Monday after a brave battle with breast cancer.

CFMEU National Secretary Zach Smith said the Member for Dunkley had been a champion for workers.

“This is a heart-breaking loss which will be felt right across the CFMEU and the wider labour movement,” he said.

“I know so many of our members who live in Dunkley and beyond will agree we’ve lost one of the finest MPs in the federal parliament.

“Peta leaves behind such a strong contribution that it’s hard to believe she was only in parliament for a little over four years.

“Peta was a fierce advocate for gender equality, breast cancer awareness and tackling broader inequality in society.

“Her humility, positivity and bravery were an inspiration. She will be sorely missed.

“I want to offer my deepest condolences to her friends and family – especially her partner Rod – on behalf of our entire union.”

    RIP Peta Murphy.
    Never gave up. Such sad news. She will be sadly missed. One of Labors best. A true believer.

    Life can be a cruel thing. Here’s a real person cut down in their prime, while really dishonest folk survive and prosper.
