I am Tamsila, I currently share the post of UWE UNISON’s LGBT+ Officer with Dan Heland. I’ve had former roles in UWE UNISON as Health & Safety Officer as well as Black Members Officer. My day job at UWE is as a technician in engineering.
I’ve been a lifelong activist both in paid and voluntary work with local and international non-government agencies. This has been in parallel with working in policy as well as in science, technology and engineering roles. In everything I do I’m very conscious about the ongoing need to defend and progress workers rights and how this intersects with social justice, which is why I think it’s important to be part of a trade union.
If you want to know more or have suggestions on UWE UNISON’s work on LGBT+ issues, please get in contact.
