It is with deep sadness that I write to advise you that Linda Roy, our former Head of Equality has passed away on Thursday 27th October.

Linda made a great contribution to our Union over many years and was one of the first women to be elected as a National Officer from the postal side.

Linda was a very strong advocate and role model for women at all levels within the CWU, she also fought tirelessly for equality and against all forms of discrimination and prejudice throughout her long career, including in her wider trade union and labour movement role.

I know I speak on behalf of all of those who knew Linda, in saying she will be sorely missed by her many friends and colleagues both within and outside the union and we offer our sincere condolences to her husband Alex and Linda’s family.

Further details on the funeral arrangements will follow in due course.

Any enquiries on the above LTB should be addressed to the General Secretary at

Yours sincerely

Dave Ward
General Secretary 

22LTB435 Linda Roy
