              Alistair Maclean 1950 – 2020




It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Alistair Maclean, Community National Secretary and General Secretary of the IDU section.


Alistair has been the face of our union since 2005 and previously looked after our membership for nearly 30 years altogether, and so many of us have worked with him over this time. Alistair had a big vision for the IDU, his dream was to build a strong membership and ensure that each worker had a better working life. His drive and energy were infectious to all, which enabled the IDU to grow stronger each year. Alistair had a huge character and all that knew him will make sure we will continue to uphold all that good work so that his dream and vision carries on.


We are in touch with Alistair’s family and are offering our condolences and support. Our colleagues at Community, have set up a book of condolence which you can find here.


Alistair will be very sadly missed by all.


Deb Wood

Community NEC member and President of the IDU
