GLI is pleased to announce that Dave Spooner has been appointed as Director of Union Solidarity International (USi) in a part-time capacity.
He will continue to be a co-Director of GLI. Dave will take over from Andrew Brady, who has been instrumental in steering USi to become a leading news provider and grassroots international organisation for union solidarity using social media, and generating union support throughout the world. Andrew is stepping down from USi to take up vital work for Unite the Union in the UK.
Dave’s appointment marks the beginning of a new and exciting phase of growing cooperation between GLI and USi. As many will know, USi has been instrumental in transforming GLI’s annual international summer school into a major live-streamed social media event.
We now look forward to working together more closely, combining skills and experience in campaigning, communications, education, research and project management to advance international trade union organisation and solidarity.
