Position: Branch President
Telephone Number: 07802423987
I worked within the NHS for the 36 years and retired in 2016 I have always been aware of the importance of the union and the constant daily fight in protecting ourselves and others within the workplace. Thankfully over the years I had some good mentors who guided me into my first post as a union rep and later being part of the executive committee within a large hospital.
Over the years the various unions came and went, brought down at the hands of those, who even today continue with the oppression against the working people
A few years ago I decided that my then union, was doing very little to protect me or my colleagues within the workplace and I made the decision to change.
I joined the GMB after much research and made the decision that this was " a can do and will do" union, something which has been missing in so many other unions for so long.
I joined the Z60 Branch and was elected as workplace organizer health and safety rep and an accredited rep and was elected as Branch President a first for our branch to have a female as president. I am now an accompanying rep which allows me to represent members in ALL workplaces.
I love my role and the support that it not only gives to members, but also to me.
It's a forward thinking branch that is moving onwards with a multitude of ages and experiences from all areas of workforces throughout the city and county.
There is no I, only we. I am proud of the union and of our branch and I cannot emphasize enough the importance of belonging to a union, if you haven't already decided now is the time, more so than ever, to join. The process is simple. Do it today. Join the GMB.
