The United Left wants to celebrate the life of one of our very best.
Jan Bastable was our friend, our colleague, our inspiration. She was unfailing generous with her time and support. She continually challenged all of us to be better, and we loved her for it.
Jan passed away on Friday 12 November, and we will miss her from all of the roles she held in the union, especially as a long-standing UL NCC member, chair of our South East Region Women’s Committee and Finance and Legal Industrial Committee.
But most of all we will miss her because she was, simply, great.
