Vale Shane O’Reilly

It is with profound sadness that we advise members that our beloved Organiser Shane O’Reilly has suddenly passed away.

Shane has been a unionist for over 2 decades. He has worked at the Missos, AMWU, AWU, and for the last 12 months with us as a massive part of the IEUA WA Branch.

Shane was a 100% committed unionist who always fought for fairness and advancing workers rights. Shane was loved, respected and a very valued part of our team and the IEUA WA family. We will miss Shane’s stories, his funny comments, his leadership, support, and unwavering commitment to our staff, members and the WA union movement.

We send much love and thoughts to Shane’s wife Jenny , his children, grandchildren, brothers & his friends at this very sad time.

Vale Shane O’Reilly – taken too soon. We will miss you comrade 💪 ❤️

In lieu of flowers, Shane’s family request that you donate to Union Aid Abroad – APHEDA, the global justice organisation of the Australian union movement.
