It was held in the TUC headquarters in Congress House, London. Our UNISON General Secretary Dave Prentis gave a speech celebrating Eric's life as did his son, brother and friends including the Cuban Ambassador no less.
Eric and I had worked together for many years as UNISON activists in London and we had enjoyed the occasional social drink or three. He was kind and supportive to me as a London regional lay activist and when I became an NEC member. He was a really special person and will be missed. Nuf said.
