30th anniversary as a Housing Officer and Trade Union Activist
I cannot believe how fast the years have flown by nor that I still work normally one day a week in Bow for my same TUPE successor employer.
This picture is from the month long - all out 1999 UNISON Housing Strike, when I was the Chair of the Strike Committee. When we stopped the closure of local housing officers and the making of many staff redundant. It was a very tough dispute and while I hope to avoid future strikes with my present employer, it seems at the moment, very likely we will.
Watch this space!
UPDATE: It was pointed out that yesterday 6/9/23 was also the day that my employer issued me with a fire and rehire dismissal letter! The irony!
