Additional Information

Jim was born and raised in Coventry. He left school to work in a factory which made fibre glass roofing lasting seven months before getting at job in the Peugeot factory in Ryton in 1988. It was here that Jim joined the Transport and General Workers Union rising to become Convenor of the plant in 2004. This experience gave Jim both the skills and motivation to do the job he now does. Jim later worked for the Union and also for a Coventry MP.


Jim has been a member of the Labour Party for many years holding lots of different positions. He is also a school governor at Frederick Bird School in Hillfields. He was finally elected to Coventry City Council in 2007 after a number of years of trying! He likes people that tell the truth and knows when they're not! His background dictates that he will work and fight for people who would otherwise be left behind.
