UNISON health conference told: ‘We must put the health service centre stage in the general election’
Carol Sewell also pays tribute to president Eric Roberts as she addresses Black members’ conference
General secretary Dave Prentis speaks at funeral, recalling Eric as ‘a man who inspired happiness, loyalty, good memories and love’
‘We should make Eric proud by continuing on in the union – let’s make and keep this the best union’
I will miss his honesty. I will miss his infectious personality. But most of all I will miss his friendship. Eric Roberts was a good man who gave so much to so many people. Eric said upon his election as President that UNISON was the “best union in the country”, but the truth is that Eric was the best of us.
Eric Roberts looks forward to a year as the president of ‘the best union in the country’
