POA Circulars

Bob Crow RMT General Secretary

I am sure many members will be aware of the sudden death of Bob Crow RMT General Secretary, which was widely reported in the media yesterday.

Bob Crow was a fantastic friend of the POA and spoke at our Annual Conference on numerous occasions. He was a champion of working class men and women.

He will be sadly missed not just by RMT members but the trade union movement as a whole. He was a man of integrity and at times hounded by sections of the media which was very unfair.

I am sure all POA members join with me in recognising the enormous talent of Bob Crow and also recognise the sad loss to the trade union movement.

Our thoughts should be with his family and RMT Union members and I sincerely hope that the media respect the privacy of his family at this difficult and distressing time.

Yours sincerely


STEVE GILLAN
General Secretary
