Bob Crow deceased

The news has been met with a degree of shock by many within our union. As a mark of respect to Bob's family and to our sister union RMT, all TSSA offices will close at 12 noon today, Tuesday 11 March, until 8am on Wednesday 12 March 2014.
Commenting on the news, TSSA's General Secretary, Manuel Cortes, said "Bob Crow was admired by his members and feared by employers which is exactly how he liked it.
"It was a privilege to campaign and fight alongside him because he never gave an inch.
"He was often underestimated by politicians, employers and the media because he stayed true to his working class roots. He was more than happy to be underestimated as long as he got the right results for his members.
"The news of his death is truly shocking and our thoughts and prayers today are with his partner Nicky and his family."
