It was with great sadness that BECTU learnt last weekend (11/12 August 2012) of the untimely and sudden death of Andy Leonard, long-standing branch chair of the Western Freelance branch. Andy died at just 49 years old.

Commenting on the sad and shocking news, Martin Spence, assistant general secretary said:

"I was terribly shocked to hear that we had lost Andy. He was a talented technician and a loyal trade unionist. His loss is a great blow, and our sympathies go to his family, colleagues, and his many, many friends."

A tribute to Andy Leonard will be published in Stage Screen and Radio, the union’s bi-monthly publication for members.
