Vale Brother Byron Jacobs
Dockers in Australia and around the world reach out with the deepest of sympathy and sincere and heartfelt condolences to our Brother Byron’s family, friends and workmates.
He was a true brother, union activist and proud longshoreman and his death on the job reflects the courage and commitment he and all dockers display when they turn up for work each day.
No workplace death or injury is acceptable to our dockers movement. Please relay to Brother Byron’s family that our fervent wish is that our thoughts for them somehow eases their great pain, and that our actions campaigning for a safe workplace free of that danger is continued with increased determination in memory of our dear friend.
Again our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family.
Vale Byron Jacobs. A true dockworker and loving husband and father.
Now at rest.
Sincerely and in unity,
ITF Dockers' Section Chair
MUA National Secretary
