MTA was saddened recently to learn of the passing of one of our former colleagues, Bernard Barry. Bernard was a stalwart of the Manchester Teachers’ Association, and achieved great success as our membership secretary, recruiting many Manchester teachers to our union. He had a very successful teaching career, and was a great believer in the aims of the trades union movement.
Bernard’s family have asked for donations to the Working Class Movement Library, Salford M5 4WX. They have also put together a very moving tribute to Bernard at http://bernard.barry.muchloved.com
