Chic served on the committee of the NCU Oxford Branch before taking on the role of Safety Officer in 1994. He was then elected to the role of Branch Chair in 1997 and then the Branch Secretary in 1998 serving until 2010, overseeing the merger of the Oxon & Bucks Branch, Beds Herts & Bucks Branch and the Thames Valley Engineering Branch to form the Central Counties & Thames Valley Branch.

It is with deep sadness that I write to advise you that Chic McGlynn, Former National Executive Council & T&FSE member, passed away on Saturday 6th August after a period of serious illness.

Throughout the course of his long career Chic made a great contribution in representing our members, the union and the wider Labour movement.

Chic played a major role in key national issues in our predecessor union the NCU, as well as within the CWU. Friends and colleagues will remember Chic as a very committed trade unionist and Labour movement activist. I know I speak on behalf of all those who knew Chic in saying he will be sorely missed by his many friends and colleagues within the union and in offering our sincere condolences.
