A tribute to Bob Crow

On Tuesday we learnt of the sad loss of Bob Crow. Trade unionist and socialist. Our own working class hero. A man who fought tooth and nail for his members rights, putting himself in the firing line of politicians, business leaders and the press.

The Trade union movement has lost a great warrior. Those who think the trade union movement has been weakened by his loss are deluded for there are thousands of Bob Crows in every workplace, fighting injustice and campaigning for workers rights. This is his legacy.
