Francis Gormley RIP

01 Feb 2018

It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of CWU Nightline committee member Francis Gormley yesterday. Our deepest sympathies go out to his family, friends and work colleagues in Nightline at this difficult time.

During his time as a CWU activist, Francis made an enormous contribution to your Union. He was one of the very first members of the Union in Nightline and played a leading role in establishing the CWU within the company. The esteem with which he was held among his fellow workers in Nightline was displayed last October when he was elected by his colleagues to represent them on the CWU Committee. In his role as a Union activist, he selflessly gave up his much of his own free time in the cause of achieving better pay and conditions for every worker in Nightline. For that, we all owe him an enormous debt of gratitude.
As a mark of respect for our friend Francis, we will be postponing the Union meeting which was due to be held tomorrow afternoon.
