This weekend Tracy White won Usdaw’s Union Learning Rep award at the union’s annual Organising Awards evening, held this year in Manchester.
In the nomination Usdaw said that Tracy, who works at Tescos in North Yorkshire, is renowned for opening the doors of lifelong learning to as many members as possible. However, she upped her game even further when her company introduced online payslips.
When Tracy saw her colleagues were struggling with the transition she took her iPad into all her local stores and helped her colleagues become familiar with the new system.
Collecting her award Tracy said:
I’m really proud of the work I’ve done around mental health. I’m also the Dementia Champion and been trying to get people to talk about dementia.”
When my name was called out I just sat there thinking someone else had won. I’m still in shock. Everybody deserves a round of applause and a pat on the back just for getting nominated.”
