Obituary - Kenneth Cameron, 1942 - 2016

TRIBUTES have been paid to the ‘greatest union leader of his generation’ from Fort William who has died, aged 74.

Kenneth Cameron, who was the General Secretary of the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) and perhaps best known for playing a key background role in the miners’ strike of 1984/85, further he received the Freedom of the Burgh on Fort William by Lochaber Council in 2000.

Kenneth, known as Ken, was the eldest son of the late, Kenny ‘Friend’ Cameron and Eileen Cameron, and older brother to Donald ‘Skeegan’ Cameron, the former Highland Councillor for Fort William. His late mother, Eileen came from Ireland, and he credited her for giving him his firebrand fighting spirit.
