BRITAIN’S communists paid tribute today to the “distinguished and tireless contribution” Graham Stevenson made to the trade-union movement.
Mr Stevenson was the Greater Midlands district secretary of the Communist Party of Britain and convenor of the Communist History Group.
Communist Party general secretary Robert Griffiths said: “It is with great sadness that, together with Communist Party chair Liz Payne, I have received the news today of the death of our Greater Midlands district secretary Graham Stevenson.
“Over many decades, he made a distinguished and tireless contribution to the trade-union movement as a full-time national organiser in the Transport & General Workers Union and then Unite and as president of the European Transport Workers’ Federation.
“He was also a proud communist, a former member of the party’s executive and political committees and recently our trade-union organiser.
“Above all, he was a champion of the working class, locally, nationally and internationally, whose history he recorded with typical enthusiasm. We send our deepest condolences to Graham’s family.”
