John Hannett – Usdaw General Secretary says:
“Lay reps are fundamentally crucial to the union delivering for our members and Anthony is a shining example of what can be achieved.
“His Tesco dotcom site at Crawley is a much safer place thanks to the efforts of Anthony and his team. His knowledge, enthusiasm and persuasive personality have resulted in staff playing a full role in the safety agenda so any risks are spotted early and dealt with before they can escalate into something more serious. Always available to offer advice and support Anthony has ensured changes are made, procedures followed and safety is well and truly embedded into the culture of the site.
“I was delighted to present Anthony with the Usdaw national award earlier this year. We are all extremely proud that he now gone on to secure the national TUC award.”
