Thomas Grieve Brady (1858–1945)

The Trades Union Movement lost still another of its old stalwarts on June 28, when Mr. Thomas Grieve Brady died at 40 Swallow Street, Port Melbourne, aged 86 years.

Of the most unostentatious type, the late Mr. Brady battled in the Labor Movement on behalf of his fellow workers throughout the whole of his long lifetime, strong and determined in all his efforts to better the lot of the workers.

He rendered yeoman service to workers in the building trades as a member, organiser, and ultimately 12 years secretary of the Amalgamated Carpenters' Society, and his organising work in the early days on the shipping front at Port Melbourne will in particular always be a memorial to his sterling worth.

The remains of Mr. Brady were interred in the Melbourne General Cemetery on June 29.
