I’m a passionate believer in the value of trade unions in protecting the human rights of British people. I also believe that for Labour to be true to itself it must put trade union organising at the heart of its campaigning.
I’m the Youth Officer for the GMB’s Ealing branch, a member of GMB Young London’s steering committee, and the Labour Link Officer for the LGO branch of UNISON.
The trade union campaign I’ve been most proud to be involved with was GMB Young London’s ‘Howl for Housing’ initiative. This campaign garnered national media attention as we sought to expose the widespread practice of ‘revenge evictions.’
With the Government’s Trade Union Bill effectively a declaration of war on the trade union movement, it is more important than ever that trade unionists and Labour Party members unite to protect workers’ rights.
