Peter Conway deeply loved life partner of Liz, father of Maddy, Sean and Rosa, died in Wellington today 9th June after battling a depressive illness for more than 12 months.

Peter fought hard in a daily struggle to stay with the family he loved. He carried this terrible illness with the same dignity and kindness that he lived his life, but ultimately it took him.

Peter committed his whole working life to improving the lives of working people, both in unions and, more recently, as the Economist and Secretary of the Council of Trade Unions. He was previously Chair of Oxfam New Zealand and was on the Board of NZ Trade and Enterprise.

A service will be held to celebrate Peter’s life, and details will be announced.
