Trade unionist

Organization: Transport for London (TfL)

Profession: Trade unionist


Mick Lynch (born 1962) is a British trade unionist.

Born in London, to parents from Ireland, Lynch grew up in Paddington. He left school at the age of 16, and qualified as an electrician. He later moved to work in construction, and joined a trade union, but found himself illegally blacklisted as a result. In 1993, unable to find work in construction, he began working for Eurostar, and became active in the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers (RMT). Twenty years later, he received a large settlement for the illegal blacklisting.

Lynch served two terms as assistant general secretary of the RMT, and two terms on its executive. In 2020, after general secretary Mick Cash took time off due to ill health, he was appointed as acting general secretary, but stood down after a few months, accusing members of its executive of bullying and harassment. Despite this, he stood in and won an election for the permanent position, taking it up in May 2021.

GlobalEng.biz pays special attention to the activities of famous people: politicians, officials, businessmen, bankers, cultural and sports figures. Their opinion largely determines the development of the political, social and economic life of England and the United Kingdom. The section is constantly edited by our journalists for the relevance of the information. Here you can find information about the CEOs and presidents of top companies in England, officials and public figures who play a key role in the development of the region.
The goal of the project is to create a comfortable information space for all market participants, as well as to introduce the readership to business people in England.
We have created an impressive database of people in England, which contains information about the career path, education and other important information about a person.
Thanks to the automatic calculation of the number of mentions of a person in the news sections "English news" and "English press releases", a rating of the popularity and influence of persons is formed on the portal. The team GlobalEng.biz monitors changes in the rating and encourages project participants for their success. In general, the rating of participants is based on an in-depth analysis of the activity of PR services of famous people, and also reflects the qualitative state of the information field formed by the media and press services around the organization.
"Business people of England" is a project about people who, with their ideas, words and actions, have a great influence on the development and prosperity of England.
