I am writing to advise branches of the sad passing of one of our long serving activist and retired members, Mr Allan Thomas. 
Allan was a member of the South East Wales Amal Branch for nearly 34 years. He had many friends and colleagues in the union and wider labour movement who we know will miss him very much indeed. He was a committed trade unionist and an immensely loyal and dedicated member of the branch and he was proud to be part of the traditions of the workers movement in South Wales. 
As an activist he was determined to change his branch for the better and worked with others to create a more socialist leadership. He became section secretary of the Cardiff Uniform Branch. He was also an Area Safety rep for many years and was a regular delegate to the union’s annual conference. 
At this sad time our thoughts are of course with Allan’s wife Joan and his family and friends. I will on behalf of the CWU convey our deepest sympathy and condolences to them. 
Branches in the region have already been informed of Allan’s sad passing and the details of the funeral which takes place on 2nd December 2016. The service and committal will take place at: Glyntaff Crematorium, Cemetery Road, Pontypridd, CF37 4BE, at 3.45pm. 
The family has requested there be family flowers only; however they have asked that charitable donations can made to Cancer Research Wales c/o Castle Court Funeral Home, Castle House, 1 Castle Street, Treforest, Pontypridd, CF37 1TA. 
If you have any enquiries in relation to this LTB, these should be addressed to the General Secretary’s Office at quoting the reference GS1.1/LTB 706/16. 
Yours sincerely
Dave Ward

General Secretary
