Stan Seymour......

 

stan seymour with flagStan Seymour, UNISON steward in Waltham Forest branch passed away last Tuesday following his long battle with cancer. Stan has always been a supportive member of the branch. When we took strike action he would always picket and join us on the demonstrations. He also took on trade union duties and had been a UNISON representative on the various committees in Environment Services over many years.
