Hello my name is Julie Bagley and I am currently the women’s officer for this branch. My role is to highlight women’s issues in the workplace and try to implement change to make work life better for women.
This year has been very hard for all and on my day release for union work I have found myself ring members to update membership details. I have also attended courses on line the latest being domestic violence. I am sending out some information on Menopause in the workplace soon, and working with the Count me in campaign making sure the importance of your vote.
After 34 years as an engineer I have decided to retire from Openreach but will stay on as your women’s rep. I want to encourage more women into
union work and ultimately take on this role for the future. I would like to thank Dave Shilton and his union safety reps for arranging
locks on communal toilets and sanitary bins where needed in telephone exchanges for our women engineers.
