CSP sends condolences to family of Bob Crow

CSP press release published on 11 March 2014

The trade union movement has lost a 'unique, principled voice', the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) says after the death of RMT leader Bob Crow.

Lesley Mercer, CSP director of employment relations and union services, said:

“Bob Crow’s tireless work on behalf of RMT members reflected his passionately-held belief that trade unionism could bring about better conditions for working men and women and safer travel for passengers.

“His passing is a tragedy and the union movement has lost a unique, principled voice.

“Bob stood shoulder-to-shoulder with CSP members in their campaign against changes to NHS pensions and was a passionate supporter of the health service.

“On a personal level, he was warm, witty and very good company, and it was upsetting for those of us around him to see the constant vilification he faced when standing up for what he believed in.

“Our thoughts are with his family and his colleagues at the RMT.”
