National Officer with Unite the Union since 2012 with specific responsibility for commercial road transport and logistics. My responsibilities include representing over 100,000 members employed in companies across the country, in all sectors of the industry. I also have responsibility to liaise on U items political agenda in the sector both in the UK and EU.
Prior to being a national officer I had regional responsibility in Northamptonshire with the high density of transport and logistics companies in that part of the world it was no surprise that it was this sector that drew me in.
Originally from Walsall in the West Midlands I spent my early adult years working in many jobs throughout the 1980’s including logistics and factory work before becoming more involved in my trade union, then the T&G.
