The FIRST Union Council for the Co-operative Bank has been confirmed – and is taking the name of the bank to heart, with councillors based in Napier and Hastings planning to work together to help grow the union.
Anishea Te Ngaru is the new councillor joining Julie Carson-Wright, Helen Taunt and Lynne Owen. Anishea is looking forward to using the skills she’s developed as a delegate in Hastings to even greater effect throughout the organisation.
Anishea’s key priorities as a councillor is to grow union membership, and to help address members’ concerns about the direction the Co-operative Bank is heading in.
The council is a whole is keen to ensure that the co-operative values that PSIS was founded on will continue now that it is a bank.
