Fran, who addressed a major climate strike rally in Newcastle last week, explains why our union believes we need to make the case for radical action on climate change.
Fran was elected national president for PCS this year. She was DWP group president for 7 years and is the Northern regional committee chair.
Fran writes about her speech at the People's Assembly demonstration against Prime Minister Boris Johnson's proroguing of parliament and how she believes the labour and trade union movement must not permit the rights and interests of working people to be trampled on.
Lots has been happening since my last blog. On return from my hols, I went straight to Durham to speak at a social security event hosted by Unite Community.
As newly elected national president I am planning to regularly blog to keep members updated with what I am up to.
