TONY CONWAY – FORMER SOUTH EAST LONDON BRANCH SECRETARY, AREA PROCESSING REP AND BRANCH POLITICAL OFFICER
It is with sadness I write to advise you that Tony Conway former South East London Branch Secretary, Area Rep and Branch Political Officer, passed away last weekend.
Tony joined the GPO in 1967 and although he retired in 2002, he continued to play an active role in his Branch and the wider Labour movement.
Tony made a great contribution in representing our members, the union and the wider Labour movement. He also played a major role in key national issues and disputes through the 1980’s and 1990’s, most notably the RRIS dispute in 1989.
He will also be remembered as somebody who had a positive influence on many of today’s CWU representatives and leaders.
I know I speak on behalf of everybody who knew Tony in saying he will be sorely missed and in offering our sincere condolences to all his family, friends and colleagues.
