Martin Keenan – Former Scottish Trade Union Council President and CWU Branch Secretary

It is with sadness that I write to inform Branches of the recent passing of Martin Keenan, former Scottish Trade Union Council President and Branch Secretary of the Edinburgh, Dundee and Borders CWU Branch.

Martin joined one of our predecessor unions CPSA in 1969 and went onto hold various positions in the CWU, including Assistant Scottish Regional Secretary.

Martin was a true comrade, mentor and friend to so many in the CWU and the wider trade union and Labour movement and he will be sorely missed.

He was a lifelong member of the Labour Party and became President of the Scottish TUC in 2009 and was highly respected for the major contribution he made in supporting our members and the whole movement.

On behalf of the CWU, we offer our sincere condolences to Martin’s wife Betty, his family and all his friends and colleagues within the union at this difficult time.

Details of Martin’s funeral arrangements will be circulated once these are known.

Yours sincerely

Dave Ward

General Secretary
