Based in: Portsmouth, England Emiliano is a journalist and organiser. Prior to joining the Bureau Local, he held a number of roles, including Head of Communications, at the IWGB, a grassroots trade union. In 2018 he helped outsourced workers organise a series of strikes at the University of London that led to a commitment by management to bring workers in-house on improved terms and conditions. As a freelance journalist, he has written exposés on fintech, media and food companies. Emiliano has enjoyed reading the Camden New Journal ever since they covered his bizarre encounter with Jeremy Irons at a picket line. He is also a fan of the Bristol Cable's cooperative model, rooted in local communities.
