Angie is a former home care worker and UNISON branch secretary.
It is fantastic that we have a shadow pension minister who knows first hand how important decent pensions are for working people.
I warn the financial services industry that she will not stand any of their nonsense.
I have met up with Angie, her husband Mark (UNISON pension rep) and their lovely children at various UNISON conferences over the years.
Angela was featured in a Guardian article a couple of years ago and I posted at the time that "Angela typifies the very best of UNISON and how it can grow its activists".
