Members who were around in the 1990’s will remember Tom Goddard – Chief Judge of the Employment Court.

It is our sad duty to advise members that Tom passed away last Thursday.

Tom was the Judge who heard the Union’s successful opposition to the mass sacking of firefighters in the 1990’s.

It is quite fair to say that firefighters today owe their employment and conditions of employment in no small measure to the wisdom and sense of justice of Tom Goddard.

A fine man and a friend of firefighters.

Tom Goddard 1938-2019 RIP
