I have been an employee of North Tyneside Council for 31 years working in Sport and Leisure Management and a Unison member since its formation.
I have always been a supporter of the union movement and cared passionately about people being treated fairly and being given equality of opportunity. In recent years I have become more active and now hold the positions of Branch Chair and Branch Equalities Officer, with a particular interest in LGBT issues. I also represent the Branch on the Unison Regional Council and Committee
Outside of the Branch I am Co-Chair of the Northern Region LGBT Self Organised Group and a member of the National LGBT Committee.
As part of my Branch Officer responsibilities I am the link officer for Members who are employed by the Council’s partner Engie.
