Mike Ellin has died. Mike was secretary of the Bolton branch of the National Union of Teachers (NUT) and the Trades Council in the late 1970s and early 1980s.He was pivotal in changing the NUT which was at the time very much a professional association into a fighting trade union and turning what was a moribund Trades Council into an effective campaigning group that was respected across Bolton.
Mike' tireless contribution to education and as a champion of working people will be long remembered.
