It is with great sadness that we have to inform you of the death, aged 55, of our colleague Bill Berry, Regional Manager.
Bill first became involved in the union as a COHSE activist in Liverpool in the 1970s. He had been a full time union official since 1984 and was COHSE’s North West Regional Secretary at UNISON’s vesting day in 1993. For many years Bill represented UNISON in the regional Labour Party and was a valued member of the union’s Conference Management Team. In recent months Bill had suffered from ill health including a minor stroke in January.
The North West region is in touch with Bill’s brother John and we will provide branches with information about funeral arrangements as soon as possible.
