Liz McGachey

I am seeking election to the National Executive Committee.

I have been a rep and a member of Left Unity for 16 years. I became the first female Chair of the DWP Glasgow Branch in 2015, and have held this position since, overseeing the merger of our Branch with the DWP Greater Glasgow Branch.

I am a Vice Chair of the PCS Scotland Committee and I sit on the DWP GEC. I was recently co-opted to Group Journal Editor.

I have been involved in a variety of Equality Committees throughout my time as a rep. I believe our members are the lifeblood of our union, and that we should be representative of all of our members.

I have been part of various campaigns around pay, office closures, and staffing. I organised and won a campaign in my own workplace to put a stop to detrimental changes to working patterns.

I have been involved with Stand Up To Racism on behalf of the Scotland Committee, helping to organise the Glasgow conference in 2020, and have been involved with a local Covid-19 action group made up of trade unionists and campaigners.

I am really proud of the work our Democracy Alliance led NEC has undertaken, particularly when faced with the challenges of the past year. If elected I pledge to take an active role in ensuring this work continues.
