I am writing to advise Branches and Representatives that after 17 years of leading our Education and Training work and 2 years of working with me at the heart of Redesign, Assistant Secretary Trish Lavelle has decided that now is the right time for her to move on to enable her to concentrate on new areas of work and to be closer to her family in Ireland.

Trish will be leaving the CWU on the 30th June 2019 and I want to place on record the thanks of the whole union for the excellent work she has undertaken on behalf of our Representatives and members.

Throughout her career Trish has been a lifelong trade unionist and activist and is held in high regard across the whole labour movement.  I am sure I speak on behalf of all Branches, Representatives and her many friends within the union, in wishing Trish and her family all the very best for the future.

Further information will be sent out in due course.

Any enquiries on the above LTB should be addressed to


Yours sincerely


Dave Ward

General Secretary 

19LTB328 Trish Lavelle – CWU National Officer
