Angela Rayner new Shadow Minister for Pensions

Congratulations to Angela Rayner MP for Ashton-under-Lyne who has been appointed as Shadow Minister for Pensions.

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".
