Dear Brother Dlamini Nelson
Mandela It is with great sadness that I write to express the
sadness and condolences of the British trade union movement at the
death of Nelson Mandela, a hero and inspiration to all of us. The
TUC, and the six million members of our affiliated unions, share
your grief and sorrow at the loss of such a great leader and
outstanding human being. We must, on this occasion, redouble our
commitment to the cause of justice, equality and freedom that he
fought and campaigned for all his life, and we send COSATU our
continuing solidarity and comradeship. Please pass our condolences
to all of your fellow leaders and members who knew Mr Mandela so
well, and also, of course, to his family and many friends. I am
copying this letter to the South African High Commissioner in the
UK, to whom we will be extending any assistance we can in
celebrating the life of Mr Mandela and mourning his passing.
Amandla! Frances O’Grady General Secretary
