Just over a week ago four notices appeared to congratulate Tony O'Brien on his retirement from work and thanking him.
To many people he would be just another man in the street but Tony, along with others, was a founder of the rank-and-file Construction Safety Campaign, which campaigns tirelessly for better conditions for building workers in an industry that is fraught with danger and an industry that has a high number of fatalities per year - many of which are preventable.
When the Construction Safety Campaign first started it was opposed by many as a splinter group, but eventually opposition was won over in the interests of common good, namely safety on site.
I am suggesting, after a chat with Lol Irwin, former regional secretary of UCATT and founder and supporter of the Construction Safety Campaign himself, that the Star should interview Tony.
It would be wonderful for building workers and your wider readership to know the work and contributions that Tony has made on behalf of people, many of whom he has never met.
He has been the Construction Safety Campaign's only secretary for more than two decades.
Further, an interview with Tony would enlighten some of those in the industry, as well as your readers, of the tireless unpaid work that he has done on behalf of building workers and others throughout Britain.
Formal recognition of this in an interview would be fitting to the important role that he has played.
