Edna Hewiston, a former senior union activist with BETA, who started as a representative at Border TV has died.

It is with regret that the we have to inform members of the passing of long serving union representative and ex vice president of BETA, Edna Hewitson.  

BETA with the ACTT, formed BECTU in 1991. Edna, who had at the time worked at Border Television, went on to serve the union after she left Border TV and became an active freelance member in the Regional Production division.

The union passes its condolences to Edna's husband Bob, daughter Sheila and son David. 

A tribute to Edna will appear in a future issue of Stage Screen and Radio.
