We  are saddened by the news that Simeon Andrews (Coordinator of the TUCG), died suddenly last week.

 Thanks for all your messages of condolences - this news has come as a terrible shock to us all. We will pass on details of the funeral arrangements etc as soon as we can.

In the meantime, we will be endeavouring to keep the work of the TUCG, and all the Parliamentary Groups which Simeon coordinated, running as usual.  He would want us to keep up the fight.

[UPDATE]

MPs have tabled Early Day Motion 1005 paying tribute to Simeon's contribution:

That this House is shocked and saddened by the sudden death of Simeon Andrews, whose advice and assistance has proved invaluable to so many Labour movement comrades and Parliamentary colleagues; pays tribute to his success in creating and co-ordinating several union parliamentary groups and cross-party groups; notes his earlier achievements as an actor with the Royal Shakespeare Company; remembers him as a principled trade unionist and socialist; further notes his passionate commitment to the arts, animal rights and Liverpool FC; and offers sincere condolences to his partner and daughter.

Foreword by Mark Serwotka, PCS General Secretary

Based on research commissioned by the TUCG, the book examines why costs have risen for all items of expenditure, ranging from housing and child care to food and transport. He makes practical proposals on how these costs can be reduced. He also delivers an uncompromising message to the leaders of all mainstream Westminster Parties: it is time to end the politics of austerity, an ideological project to cut the size of the state permanently.
