We are deeply saddened to announce that CWU President and Chair of the Postal Executive Jane Loftus has passed away earlier today following a short illness.

This news will be extremely upsetting to us all.

Jane was a huge figure in our union over many decades and we know Branches, Representatives and members will be shocked and saddened by this news.

We will of course find an appropriate way to mark Jane’s legacy in this union in due course.

However, Jane will be remembered for her passion and commitment and for her inspirational campaigning against all forms of injustice and discrimination – both within the CWU and the wider movement.

At this moment in time our thoughts are with Jane’s husband Chris, her daughter Joanne and her family and on behalf of the whole union we offer them our heartfelt condolences.

Yours sincerely

Dave Ward
