Paul Day, Director of PDA welcomed Collette to the PDA senior management team:

Collette brings a wealth of trade union experience having worked for several independent trade unions in her career to date. Having worked with teachers and lecturers for more than a decade, she is very used to helping professionals engage in union activity throughout their career; from student to employment, right through to retirement. We’re delighted to have Collette join us, she’ll bring a valuable further addition of trade union knowledge and experience to our leadership team.”

Collette commented:

I’m really excited to join the PDA at this time of growth.  Significant developments such as the recognition at Boots and the plans with NAWP have launched a new chapter in PDA’s activity where members can do more and get more through their membership.  It’s a fantastic opportunity to be part of the team building these structures and union capacity. I’ve already seen for myself some of the challenges that pharmacists face and can see the importance of the PDA organising, representing and defending members at work. I’m looking forward to making a positive difference for Pharmacists and helping to develop a stronger PDA.”
