Z60 branch sends our Condolences to Vic Baines family and friends

Sad news received today on the death of a well respected union brother



Sadly, Vic passed away suddenly on Saturday, 31 December 2016, following a short illness. He was 74 years old.

Vic was a staunch activist for many years, serving as Branch Secretary for Nottinghamshire General Branch. He was a Regional Committee and Regional Council member for a number of years, and was elected to Regional President for the Midland & East Coast Region in October 2007.

Vic will be sorely missed and remembered by everyone who knew him for his loyalty, commitment, and dedication to his Branch, the Region and wider Trade Union Movement.

The funeral arrangements are as detailed:
Monday, 23 January 2017
12.40 pm – Wilford Hill Crematorium

Friends and colleagues are most welcome to join the family, following the funeral, at the Trent Navigation Inn, 17 Meadow Lane, Nottingham NG2 3HS. Please let Cheryl Evans know, by Monday 16 January if you will be joining the family – cheryl.evans@gmb.org.uk/ or 0115 9607171

Family flowers only, please, but condolence cards and donations in lieu of flowers may be sent to Vic’s wife:
