Tribute to Malcolm Campbell

'Malcolm was Branch Secretary of the Croydon council staff's UNISONbranch (previously NALGO before merger with NUPE) for many years.
In this role he led staff's struggles for better pay and conditions aswell as coordinating casework for members. As Chair of Croydon TUC heplayed a key role in organising the ongoing Save Our Schools Campaignin Croydon, involving teaching unions, parents, school children, trade unionists and other activists. Despite the toll that Malcolm's dedicated trade union work exacted on his health, his death in his 50's has nevertheless been a terrible shock to all who knew him. We remember especially his good-humoured nature and his unwavering commitment to creating a fairer world for all.'
