Pat O’Hara – Former President, NEC Member and Postal Executive Chair
It is with great sadness that we let Branches, Representatives and members know that Pat O’Hara, former President, NEC member and Postal Executive Chair, passed away yesterday after a lengthy illness.
Pat was a great comrade, Trade Unionist and Activist of our union in every sense of the word.
He was a proud member of the Merseyside Amal Branch and served our members with great distinction at all levels of our organisation.
In the most difficult times we have faced we could not have had a better President/Chair of the union. It was during these moments, in our big dispute, that his real inner strength and wonderful sense of humour set him apart from others and kept the union moving forward.
Pat was also well known for his strong belief in family values and we will pass on the sincere condolences of the whole of the CWU to his wife Patsy and family.
We will notify Branches of the funeral arrangements in due course.
Any enquiries on the above LTB should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
