Commenting on the death this morning (Friday) of Tony Benn, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:
“Tony Benn was a friend and an inspiration to me personally and to the whole labour movement.
“He believed history shows us that big progressive changes in society are driven not by political elites, but by the endeavours of ordinary working people. His commitment to our causes meant that he was a familiar face at union events from Congress to the annual Tolpuddle Martyrs festival.
“His unceasing willingness to march alongside us and the deep sincerity he showed to everyone he encountered in the labour movement means that he leaves many friends, and has personally inspired the activism of many people from all walks of life.”
