Responding to the news today (Tuesday) that the RMT General Secretary Bob Crow has died, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:
“This is shocking news. Bob was an outstanding trade unionist, who tirelessly fought for his members, his industry and the wider trade union movement.
“He was always a good friend and comrade to me. We will miss him, and our thoughts are with his family and the RMT at this difficult time.”
