Chris Murphy R.I.P.

Sorry to hear the sad news of the passing of Chris Murphy a member of the UCATT Executive Council, life long trade union activist, a blacklisted building worker and a friend.

At last TUC Congress, Chris gave a memorable speech in favour of a General Strike. Chris appeared on the top platform of Blacklist Support Group, Construction Safety Campaign and Defend Council Housing public events. Chris Murphy was convener on London Underground and on London Borough of Islington DLOs, an example of a trade unionist that supported his class with a conscience.

I stood on many picket lines and shared many pints with Chris and was in regular contact with him up to last week, may he rest in peace. Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones.
