Jimmy Reid


It is with deep regret that we have received news of the death of Jimmy Reid.

Apart from the other activities he had been involved in, as a leader of the UCS work-in, Rector of Glasgow University, renowned journalist and broadcaster, etc.; he was also a friend and supporter of this group. Several of our Management Committee had the good fortune to be associated with him over the years in the trade union and labour movement, and will always remember his talent, courtesy, dignity, and above all his sincere humility. We will not add to the many words already spoken or those still to come. We thank him for the memories and offer the condolences of the management committee and membership of Clydebank Asbestos Group to Joan and Family.
