(26 August 2019) It was with great sadness that we received the news of the sudden departure of our comrade Arnaud Mellaerts 22 August. Our thoughts are for his partner, family, friends and the comrades of the union. EPSU has sent a letter of condolences to the union. Arnaud was the General Secretary of the local union of the Territoriaux de Drancy and member of the Federal Executive of the CGT-Services Publics. He was responsible for the European and international work of the union. Delegates of the EPSU Congress will recall his defence of union democracy and the importance of engagement in the work of the union movement. Arnaud was dedicated to our common struggle for a better world. He will not be forgotten.
