Jack O’Connor has stepped down as General President of SIPTU after 14 and a half years.
During Jacks time as General President, SIPTU has continued to grow despite some of the darkest economic days in Irish memory.
Jack who always put the cause of the worker first has had his share of criticism from the right wing media, a sure sign that Jacks integrity could not be compromised.
BATU would like to add our voice to all Unions and Workers who wish to thank Jack for all his hard work and leadership and to wish him all the continued success in the future.
Finally, on behalf of BATU and its members, thank you Jack for standing beside BATU during some of our blackest days, BATU will always be proud to call you a friend and brother.
