I’ve known Ann for over 15 years as a good friend and colleague within the labour and trade union movement, and am thrilled that she is standing for rector.
She’s a tireless campaigner for working people, and for women’s rights in particular.
At the STUC she very effectively represented the views of workers to government, employers and the wider public, tackling challenging issues such as poverty pay, access to abortion, and zero hours contracts.
I know she will be an excellent voice of students, and she will understand the concerns of workers at the university.
It would be brilliant to see a strong woman campaigner like Ann as the next rector at Edinburgh.”
