After working for over 20 years in the private sector, I started working as a Teaching Assistant in a Bedford primary school in 2005. Since then, I’ve worked in various school roles, most recently as Safeguarding Officer in a secondary school.

I became Branch Secretary for the UNISON MK Area Branch in April 2018 on the retirement of Graham Blues. One of my main priorities in the role is to try to encourage more people, especially women and young members, to become active in the union as workplace stewards or branch officers.

As well as Branch Secretary, I am Vice Chair of the Regional Women’s Committee, Chair of the South East Regional Schools Forum and the region’s rep on the National Schools Sector Committee.

Away from the union, I spend much of my spare time reading and attracting stray cats.

Role: Black Members' Officer

Email: olan.babarinde@milton-keynes.gov.uk

Phone number: 01908 254407

As the Branch Black Members’ Officer, I am the identified point of contact in the branch for issues affecting black members. Equality is the bedrock of Unison and as such one of its main aims is to help workers fight for fairness and equality in the workplace and beyond. My role is therefore to coordinate and monitor this shared responsibility for tackling prejudices, discrimination and promoting equality.

Danny Conway

Role: Branch Rep

Phone number:

I worked in Children’s Social Care from 1977 to 2013, most of it spent with Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Councils. I held a range of position including social worker, community centre manager, team manager, project manager and commissioning.

In 2015 I trained as Unison Steward so that together with other retired members we could help local Unison members who needed someone in their corner. I particularly find my extensive experience as a commissioner/negotiator helps when I am representing supporting members.

Outside the serious stuff I love playing tennis and hill walking with friends.
