UNISON Chief: Great shock at death of RMT leader Bob Crow

UNISON General Secretary, Dave Prentis, said:

“I am shocked and saddened to hear of the death of Bob Crow.  UNISON members will want to send their sympathy to his family and friends.

“Bob was a tough, no-nonsense union leader who always did his best for his members.  And it was very much down to his tough stance that their pay and conditions improved.

“Despite all the flack he got, he stood his ground and was a great member of our trade union family.  His loss will be felt across the whole trade union movement.”
