Colin Priest -2011

(Stalybridge and Hyde CLP)

Colin was a full-time officer for the GMB and the Regional Political Officer of the Union, as well as a very active member of his local Labour Party.

He died at the tragically young age of 39 in March 2011, having suffered a heart attack on the train from Manchester to London for the recent TUC march against the cuts. He leaves behind his wife Cath, sons Matthew and Daniel and many, many grieving friends in the local Labour Party and Trade Union movement.
