Endorsement from Ms Pip Marshall, UCU Yorkshire and Humber Regional Prison Rep (NOVUS)
I am an active member in union work in the Prison Education Sector. UCU is in desperate need of strong membership in these turbulent times. I believe that Jo Grady can provide this. Jo Grady has the academic credentials that means she has a deep understanding of trade union matters. Even though that is something people can learn, what they cannot learn is passion, empathy and the ability to lead. Jo has these things in abundance. Basically, Jo cares about all the membership within the Union. Jo wants to change things in the Union for the benefit of all members and this can be clearly seen in her manifesto.
With Jo Grady, I believe the Union can be truly unified and become a strong force for education. It is an opportunity to vote in someone who knows what it is like on the front line and understands the needs of members. Jo has always spoken with care and consistency throughout her campaign, and is also extremely practical and solution focused. All these things we need in order to grow the Union and fight the oncoming issues. For these reasons, I urge you to vote for Jo Grady for UCU General Secretary.
