Emilie Oldknow is the Chief Operating Officer (COO) at the trade union UNISON,[2] having resigned in March 2018 as Executive Director - Governance, Membership and Party Services at Labour Party headquarters saying she would be standing down in the summer of 2018.[3]

She was formerly Regional Director of East Midlands Labour Party,[4] and was PPC for the Sherwood constituency in the 2010 General Election.[5]

Emilie Oldknow married Shadow Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Jonathan Ashworth in July 2010.[6]

On 12 April 2020, Emilie Oldknow was identified as one of the Labour Party's "Senior Management Team" (SMT) who were engaged in undermining former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and working to ensure the party was defeated in the UK/2017 General Election.[7]

On 13 April 2020, Diane Abbott tweeted:

"So is Emilie Oldknow seriously going to be @Keir_Starmer pick for @UKLabour General Secretary? Surely she should never be employed by the Labour Party in any capacity ever again?"[8]
