Union socialist

"I am a lifelong trade unionist - I have been a proud member of UCU for 9 years, teaching trade union studies at Manchester college - yet my trade union background comes from the Fire Brigades Union, where I spent a happy almost 20 years - primarily as a firefighter in Merseyside fire and rescue service, which I joined fresh faced at just 19 years old, then later as a local, regional then national rep and officer of the 18 strong executive council of the FBU, as the first NEC member elected to represent women in the UK fire and rescue service.

We are trade unionists, socialists and internationalists.

And on the international agenda, our union has so much to be proud of, we are a leader on the movement's world stage educationally, socially and politically. We have progressive policy and are proactive in our campaigns and our networking, our solidarity action and our outcomes.

Palestine, Turkey, Colombia, Brazil, Egypt, Iraq, Cuba to name just a few of our focus areas internationally... of our contribution and our links we should be rightly proud. I have recently returned from a May day trip to the West Bank - Palestine, taking solidarity greetings to Isreali and Palestinian organisations striving for peace and had the honour to speak at the Palestine rally last week in London too."[1]==Wigan Diggers event==
