The Amalgamated Engineering and Electrical Union (AEEU) is to
recruit a regional press officer to work alongside and report to D-J
Collins, press secretary to union leader Sir Ken Jackson. The recruit
will seek to raise the AEEU’s profile in the regions. The union counts
730,000 members, with particular concentrations in the Midlands,
Scotland and Wales. Collins currently works as a one-person press
operation within the AEEU’s policy unit.
