communications. Nigel Stanley moves from his post as Westminster liaison

officer to replace John Healey, who was elected as MP for Wentworth on 1

Stanley takes responsibility for a team of ten and will report to

general secretary John Monks.



Before working for the TUC, Stanley spent two years as a public affairs

consultant and nine years working in parliament, for Robin Cook and

Bryan Gould.



’I want to hit the ground running with the new Labour Government. We’ve

got a chance to make our voice heard but we can’t rely on sentiment or

shared history,’ said Stanley.



’The TUC must become even more professional in its public affairs, media

and campaigning.



’As the champion of everyone at work, we have much to do to achieve a

fair deal in the workplace, after the years of deregulation and job

insecurity.’



Stanley said that the campaigns and communications department would

employ PR and public affairs consultancies on a project basis.



The head of campaigns and communications role includes responsibility

for campaigning, media relations, publications, parliamentary lobbying,

conference and events management and market research functions.



The TUC has 74 member unions representing seven million people.
