PAUL MOORE – FORMER NATIONAL EXECUTIVE COUNCIL MEMBER, CHAIR OF THE STANDING ORDERS COMMITTEE AND ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF GREATER LONDON COMBINED BRANCH
It is with deep sadness that I write to advise you that Paul Moore, Former National Executive Council member, Chair of the Standing Orders Committee and Assistant Secretary of Greater London Combined Branch, passed away on Tuesday 1stFebruary after a period of serious illness.
Throughout the course of his long career Paul had made a great contribution in representing our members, the union and the wider Labour movement.
Paul played a major role in key national issues in our predecessor unions the POEU and NCU, as well as within the CWU. He was a highly influential speaker at our conferences and played a crucial role in successful strikes that took place in Girobank and the BT engineers’ London contract dispute in 1997.
Paul was also very active in the wider Labour movement and was an elected Councillor in the GLC and a delegate to the Labour Conference for many years. He will always be remembered as somebody who through his knowledge, experience and intellect, had a positive influence on many of today’s CWU representatives and leaders.
I know I speak on behalf of everybody who knew Paul, in saying he will be sorely missed and we offer our sincere condolences to his partner Susan, his sons Max and Felix and all his friends and colleagues.
Details of Paul’s funeral will be circulated in due course.
Any enquiries on the above LTB should be addressed to the General Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org
