Jason Moyer-Lee, General Secretary of the Independent Workers Union of Great Britain (IWGB)
Jason has spent the last few years in the UK trade union movement. He began his involvement with the IWGB while studying for his PhD at the School of Oriental and African Studies and has held a leadership position in the IWGB since 2013. He began by successfully campaigning with the cleaners at the University of London to earn the London Living Wage. From there, Jason continued to fight for the cleaners and the IWGB has now expanded to include other precarious workers - couriers, security officers, foster care workers and private hire drivers can now join the IWGB. Jason is currently the General Secretary of the IWGB.
