The new Principal Executive Council (PEC) for the 2022-2024 term took office at the end of Accord's 2022 Conference - meet the members.
It’s a huge honour and pleasure to address this conference as your President. I hope you enjoy the next two days and will commit yourself to help rebuild Accord as a successful, independent, viable and sustainable union through these most difficult of times. I hope that this conference will draw us together, give us a unity of purpose and build our confidence and momentum to make positive changes happen for our members.Neil Magill
We welcome back Lisa Sullivan and Aarren Mowle, both from Group Transformation in Halifax, who have served on the PEC before. We're also delighted to welcome new talent to the Council; Charli Webb from the Halifax in Hull and Nickul Hathi from Chief Operating Office in London. Read what they had to say about being elected below...
I’ve worked for LBG for 11 years and I’m really pleased to be joining Accord’s PEC and look forward to ensuring that the union is well governed in the interest of our members and has a bright future.Nickul Hathi
I’ve worked for the Halifax since 2017 and have been an Accord member for five years. I think it’s really important that young members are represented on the PEC, helping to reach out and engage with them. Younger staff have real issues about our jobs, living standards, careers, homes and pension and we need to make our voices heard in the union and with our employers.Charli Webb
It feels amazing to be back on the PEC and the opportunity to support Accord and its members with its goals. I’m looking forward to working with my new (and not so new) colleagues and navigating through what is now our new world. It’s clear there is still a lot to do for our members.Lisa Sullivan
It’s great to be back working on the PEC and having the ability to influence how the union is governed. Working in group transformation, I would like to be able to influence what is happening in that area more via the PEC discussions. I think the biggest challenges are keeping the group as a whole at the forefront of decision making rather than being siloed into the area you work in.Aarren Mowle
