With profound sorrow, it is intimated that Comrade N.M.Sundaram, former General Secretary of AIIEA and veteran trade union leader, has passed away at 08.20 AM today, 26th December 2017, at his residence, Chennai. He suffered a massive heart attack.
Com.NMS, as he was fondly called, was the General Secretary of AIIEA for long years. He is the author of many books on trade union etc. He was a powerful speaker and led the movement for years. My connection with him dates back since 1980s and continued till the last. I met him last when he came to Kozhikode to attend the inauguration of the Saroj Bhawan and attending the meeting in the NGO Union hall.
BSNLEU has got close relation with AIIEA and its leaders. It is pertinent to mention that it was Com.NMS, who inaugurated the formation Conference of BSNLEU at Visakhapatanam on 22nd March 2001. I had attended almost all the AICs of AIIEA for many years.
The passing away of Com. NM Sundaram is a great loss to the TU movement in India.
My heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family, friends and comrades!
Red Salute to Com. NMS!
