DAVE EMBERSON – FORMER BRANCH SECRETARY OF WESTERN MT
It is with great sadness that we write to inform you of the recent passing of Dave Emberson former National Executive member and Branch Secretary of the Western MT Branch.
Dave was originally a member of the POEU from 1962 and served at every level of the union, including the National Executive, Regional and Branch positions.
Dave was a BT Fleet Technician who joined what was then the GPO back in 1960 and he retired from BT in 1994.
He was awarded the union’s Gold Badge in recognition of his services to our members and he continued to contribute as a retired member of the Western MT Branch until his recent passing.
The union has been in contact with Dave’s daughter Julie, who is keen to ensure that her father’s contribution to the Trade Union movement is not forgotten and has asked that if anyone wishes to mark his passing, they can do so by contributing to his preferred charity the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance Service.
Finally, I know I speak on behalf of all of Dave’s longstanding friends and colleagues in the union, in offering our sincere condolences to Dave’s daughter Julie and their family and in saying that he will be greatly missed.
