On 30 January at 10am, Sandra Moran, Partner in the Wellington Law Firm of Oakley Moran died peacefully at her family home in Wellington.

Oakley Moran has acted for the Union for many years and Sandra was intimately involved in many of the Union’s cases.

In particular, Sandra will be remembered as the lead in the Union’s opposition to the mass sackings in 1998.

It is no exaggeration to say that all Firefighters owe a massive debt to Sandra. If it was not for her intellect, wisdom, effort and commitment, the Fire Service today would be a very poor and ineffective organization indeed.

Sandra also acted in many other landmark cases for other Unions as well.

Sandra will be remembered with much affection and honour by the Union.

The Union’s sympathy is extended to Sandra’s family and friends.
