DAVE WALTON – EX BRANCH SECRETARY, NATIONAL AUDITOR, SUB DIVISIONAL REPRESENTATIVE
It is with great sadness that I write to Branches to inform you that Dave Walton ex CWU National Auditor, Leeds Amalgamated Branch Secretary and Sub Divisional Representative, passed away suddenly over the weekend.
Dave had taken early retirement a few years ago and during his long career he led the Leeds Amal Branch for many years and was very well known and respected throughout the CWU. He had also been elected on many occasions as one of our National Auditors.
Dave was union through and through and made an enormous contribution in supporting representatives, members and our work in the wider movement. I know I speak on behalf of his many friends and the whole union in saying he will be sorely missed.
Our thoughts at this time are with Dave’s wife Karen, his son Aidan, his daughter Sarah and the family. We will convey to them our deepest sympathy and condolences on behalf of the CWU.
Any enquiries on the above LTB should be addressed to the firstname.lastname@example.org.
