PSA members and staff are deeply saddened by the recent and sudden death on 13 November of former PSA National Secretary Lynn Middleton
Lynn played an important and significant role in the union movement, working for NZEI, NZCTU, PSA and Education International.
After working as women’s officer at the CTU, she became PSA National Secretary in 1999.
As a member of the newly formed three person PSA Secretariat Lynn led the union into a period of strong membership growth, growing presence and engagement with Government and employers. She made strong connections and formed important relationships with key leaders throughout the public service.
Lynn was a remarkable person who was very social, putting everyone at ease and spreading her warmth and support. It wasn’t long before she made her wonderful gregarious presence felt.
There will be a celebration of Lynn’s life in a service in the week of 25 November, following a private family funeral this week.
Details of the celebration of Lynn’s life to follow.
