Bob Crow, the last class [...].
Could he be the last of the genuine working class heroes? Under his watch he made sure that his members were paid a proper living wage with working conditions to match. He also fought tirelessly against Government cuts, protecting his union members to the very last.
As a mark of respect and appreciation for all that he'd achieved it would be a nice gesture if all RMT union members stopped work during the funeral.
Although Bob Crow has gone, the working class struggle will still carry on.
M Bach, Stirchley BOB Crow was perhaps the last trade unionist in the trade union movement. He was a leader of an industry that is facing massive changes in working practices.
I was a member of the RMT and chairman of Birmingham New Street and I had a lot of differences with Bob and his henchmen, but I admired Bob as he was a man who stood up for his principles and, like Dennis Skinner MP, a breed of union man with that belief in the working man.
Bob will be sorely missed and my condolences to his family.
ST Vaughan, Yardley Wood
