The Australian labour movement farewelled comrade Bill Deller this week. He passed away peacefully in the early hours of Friday 17 October. Bill’s history in trade unionism commenced early on while in WA working in the mining industry. In the 1990’s he was leader of the State Public Sector Federation (CPSU SPSF), and then an organiser and life member of the National Tertiary Education Union (NTEU). Bill was also a popular voice on Community Radio 3CR, and his community radio activism spanned more than 20 years. Our thoughts are with Bill’s family and close friends at this time. A memorial service will be held at Trades Hall, and details will be announced soon.
Red Salute. Vale Bill.
