Sarah Owen, Political Officer (Parliamentary) | 

Sarah joined GMB from the House of Lords, where she worked to fight the Conservative's disgraceful Trade Union Bill. With a background in policy, communications and over a decade of grassroots political campaigning, she has gained experience at every level of government. Sarah works with our MPs, Peers and sectors to ensure that the needs of our members are properly reflected by our political values.

Tom joined the political team in 2016, bringing with him 7 years of experience from working as a Political Officer at a sister union. Over the years he has worked on many successful trade union and Labour Party campaigns, most recently with our Professional Drivers branch campaigning against Uber and the introduction of a language test. Tom leads on local government and is currently building GMB's Councillor Network.
