Description

Morning tea with Hon Michael Wood, 

Minister of Transport, Immigration and Workplace Relations and Safety

All of the Ministers are the hot topics in our region, they all play a huge part in our economy, getting our products and good around, our workers to their work sites, having enough workers and then keeping them safe and secure in their jobs.  

Having time with the Minister is always worthwhile both for him to understand our particular challenges and issues and in some cases solutions, and for him to explain his thoughts and position.

Michael was first elected to Parliament at the 2016 Mt Roskill by-election. In opposition he was Labour’s spokesperson for Transport, Revenue, and Consumer Affairs, and after the election he had roles as Parliamentary Under-Secretary to the Minister for Ethnic Communities and Chair of the Finance & Expenditure Select Committee, before coming into the Chief Labour Whip role in mid-2019.

Following the 2020 General Election, Michael became a sworn Member of the Executive and was appointed by the Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern as the Minister of Transport and Minister of Workplace Relations and Safety. He was also given the role of Deputy Leader of the House. In June 2022 the Prime Minister announced a reshuffle of Cabinet portfolios and delegated added responsibilities to Michael. He has also taken up the role as the Minister of Immigration.

Along with his wife Julie and their three young sons, Michael lives in Roskill South where he loves to tramp along the Waikowhai Coast, tends to a very neglected vegetable garden, and dreams of an alternative career as a roving international test cricket commentator.
