I am standing for re-election to the NEC, as a left unity member and a socialist. Democracy Alliance led NEC continues to be at the front of the fight for our members, putting principle at the heart of our actions and challenging the government through effective industrial campaigns. We will continue to challenge government cuts and defend our members jobs and conditions.

I identify as LGBT+ so marginalisation and issues of discrimination are integral to my experience and my approach. Our strength as a member-led union is our ability to reflect the experiences of members and fight effectively to challenge discrimination and injustice. The discriminations faced by women, part-time workers, disabled workers, LGBT+ and black workers shows us that there is much to challenge. These injustices will continue to be a priority for our Democracy Alliance NEC. 

The year to come is critical for the future of our union. We need to:

  • continue the work done by the NEC in leading campaigns for pay, pensions and to improve our members standard of living
  • work together to challenge attacks on our members hard fought rights
  • continue to develop our organising structures to build a stronger union
  • oppose office closures and oppose privatisation of services
  • develop policy to progress our members’ rights through equality analysis and legal means
  • support our members’ collective voice in the face of marginalisation and discrimination

I am asking for your support to continue that fight on the NEC and we shall be tireless in our pursuit of the best outcomes for our members across PCS.
