Devastating news to lose Peter Simpson to #Melanoma last night. Peter was an amazing supporter of @melanomasupport and will be terribly missed by everyone that knew him in the #melanoma community.

This is terrific. On the sad day that former QLD Secretary Peter Simpson passed away this anti-racism video makes it clear that the @etuqldnt is still a clarion call for social justice, for a member-led union and decent values.

Our deepest sympathies are extended today to Peter’s family, close friends and the broader @etuqldnt family. His regular support offered to our branch was invaluable as was the individual examples of mentorship at that time, remembered in the highest regard,
Vale Peter Simpson

Today MPA is mourning the loss of Peter Simpson.

Our heartfelt condolences to Penny and his family.

Australia is today the poorer for the death last night of Union stalwart and ETU leader Peter (Simmo) Simpson in Brisbane. Simmo defied the devil cancer for years, displaying a fortitude that was his everyday persona. He fought untiringly for workers’ rights. A true hero. #auspol

Vale Peter Simpson. Statement from @sallymcmanus on behalf of the ACTU.

“Simmo was the best of what unionism is. Committed to the progress of working people and their right to a better life. Willing to stand up for the values he held so dearly.

Today we mourn the loss of Qld labour movement giant, Peter Simpson. Defender of public ownership, tenacious fighter for @etuqldnt members, Newman destroyer. Simmo & I fought for years before we decided it was better to work together – and we were stronger for it. Vale comrade.

It is with immense sadness that ETUQld NT advises the passing of our comrade & former State Sec Peter Simpson following a long battle with Melonoma. “Simmo” was a giant of our union & the labour movt. Our thoughts are with his mother, wife Penny, their children & grand-children.

Such sad news today. We have lost a legend of our movement. Vale Peter Simpson (Simmo) @Simmo_63 Our thoughts and condolences to Penny and his family and @etuqldnt @ETU_national

Last night we lost a legend of the union movement and left-wing politics, Peter Simpson ‘Simmo’ following a long battle with Melanoma.

Simmo was a union man through and through.

From the age of 17 he was an apprentice trainee linesman and a rank and file ETU member.

We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
