Nayla Glaise elected as new Eurocadres President
A French national and UGICT-CGT member, Ms Glaise received an overwhelming majority from Eurocadres members.
During Eurocadres’ sixth congress, held in Madrid from October 20 – 21, members elected Nayla Glaise as President of the trade union, assuming the role from outgoing President Martin Jefflén. A member of the Eurocadres presidium since 2017, acting as treasurer from 2017 – 2021, Nayla becomes the first female Eurocadres president, and will begin in her role with immediate effect.
– I am delighted to be entrusted with the Presidency of Eurocadres at a time where the work of trade unions can guide European workers through changes such as digitalisation, the green transition and our pandemic recovery.
“The pandemic has forever changed our relationship with the working world, and we can no longer live as we did before it. It is up to us, the representatives of professionals and managers, to drive change to a more green, equitable and moral working world, and to allow a fair transition throughout Europe. I am delighted to be entrusted with the Presidency of Eurocadres at a time where the work of trade unions can guide European workers through changes such as digitalisation, the green transition and our pandemic recovery”.
As a computer engineer in her native France, Nayla has been actively involved in advocating for improved working conditions of workers including teleworking, legislation on psychosocial health risks, trade union input to the digitalisation of workplaces and workers’ role in achieving sustainability.
“Our new presidium will definitely be kept on our toes with upcoming legislation and the push for further action to protect European workers. I am looking forward to getting started with the team in the coming days”.
