At this year’s UNISON South West Get Active weekend Steward Dudley Hackling picked up the award for Organising Rep of the Year (CVS) after a unanimous decision by the judges. Get Active ran on Friday 22 Jan and Saturday 23 Jan with the awards presentation on the Friday night.
Dudley has been a highly influential rep in Bristol Waste Company – mentoring new stewards, negotiating with his employer, representing members, developing ULRs and workplace learning agreements, recruiting non-members as well as being involved at Branch Committee level.
Dudley said: “people in contracted services like waste often get a bad deal from employers who want to take advantage of us. My colleagues and I stood up for fairness and won a decent wage. It goes to show what can be achieved if everyone stands together for justice.”
Well done Dudley, from everyone in the Branch!
