Dear Shop Steward / Activist
This afternoon we received the very sad news that Anthony Meaney has passed away. Many of you will have known Anthony very well in his capacity as the shop steward in Tesco Castlebar for many years, he also served as member of Mandate’s National Executive Council. While he had been out of work, he had hoped to return in a limited capacity early in the New Year and was diligently working towards this goal.
While I had only met Anthony on one occasion through the course of the recent ballot in Tesco, it was clear to me the high regard and respect his fellow union members in Tesco Castlebar had for him.
As a mark of respect this evening’s Local Council meeting is postponed until next Monday evening the 13th of December.
Ni bheidh a leithead aris ann, we shall not see his like again.
