Branch: Greater London Combined (T&FS) Region: Employer: Openreach
I joined BT Openreach in September 2008 as a customer service apprentice. I started to become active in the union in 2015 after my first child was born and I needed more than ever to feel that I was making a difference in the world no matter how small. Since that time, I have served as my branch’s young workers officers for over two years, both acting and then elected. I have been the chair of the London Regional Equality Committee since January this year.
I whole heartedly believe in building on the already amazing equality movement within our union and ensure the next generation of CWU workers are measured only by the work they do and not their religion, disability, race, gender or sexual preference. The union movement is a community that is in need of reinvigoration and although young trade unionists may well be in decline, I look forward to tackling this key issue with a group of likeminded young workers to ensure the future of our union is a bright one.
