I was saddened to hear of the passing of former ASU secretary and the Technical Services Guild secretary Ted Cowell. On behalf of the ASU and the National Executive, I extend my condolences to his wife Rosemary and their children and grandchildren.
Ted was one of the pioneers that formed the Technical Services Guild from within the company NCR and led the fight for award coverage.
He made an immense contribution to the Union movement and improved the lives of working people in our country.
Our thoughts are with his family.
