Dear Brother Dias,
We are very sorry to hear about the passing of Brother Bob White.
Bob was a passionate defender of the working class throughout his life. CUPW owes him a debt of gratitude for the role he played, as head of the Canadian Labour Congress, in helping our union win employee status and a collective agreement for over 6000 Rural and Suburban Mail Carriers. We shall forever be grateful for his assistance and support.
We would also like to pay tribute to Brother White for his vocal opposition to injustices of all kinds, especially unfair trade agreements, an issue that plagues workers to this day. CUPW pledges to continue his good work, along with our brothers and sisters in the labour movement.
On behalf of the National Executive Board and the 50,000 members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, I would like to send condolences to Bob’s family and his union brothers and sisters.
Canadian Union of Postal Workers
