RTC Officer – Jen Parker
I am a Regional Industrial Officer based in the Southampton Office. My allocation includes Road Transport, Passenger Transport, Docks, Food Drink & Tobacco. Since the South East Region moved to sector rather than a geographical allocation, it has allowed me to be more focused on issues pertaining to Transport, which without doubt has given me a better insight into the problems our members are having in this sector, which I firmly believe has been hardest hit in the economic climate, which exists presently and unfortunately is likely to continue for some time.
My background before becoming a Unite officer was as a Bus driver for over 20 years, where I took an active part in the Branch and was involved in everyday grievance and disciplinary issues, as well as the collective matters such as pay and the resulting disputes with the Company.
