2006: TUC Women’s Committee

In March 2006, Pauline Cawood became the first ASLEF member elected to the TUC Women’s Committee.

When reporting on her election, fellow consultative committee member Wendy Hurst said:

Then the all important TUC Women’s Committee ballot. ASLEF had nominated Pauline Cawood, although we were advised that usually a candidate would not succeed on their first attempt. Against the odds we are proud to announce that Pauline was elected to the committee.
