Heartfelt condolences on the sad demise of Com. J.P.Chaubey

We are sad to announce the death of Brother J.P. Chaubey, General Secretary of the All India Railwaymen’s Federation (AIRF). He died after a brief illness today, at the age of 85. Brother Chaubey had been the General Secretary of AIRF since 1975. He had joined the Indian Railway in 1946 and in 1950 he was elected as the Assistant Secretary of the local branch of the union. In 1962 he was elected as Vice President of AIRF and was the Treasurer of AIRF from 1963 to 1975.

Brother Chaubey was the strongest pillar of the Indian Railways Trade Union Movement which he served with selfless dedication and led for six decades. His simple lifestyle and missionary zeal will be remembered for a long time to come. With his demise, the Indian Trade Union movement has lost one of its most respected senior members.

“Brother Chaubey was a major supporter of the ITF over many years, and we are sad to hear of his sudden death. He will be missed by railways unions throughout the world,” said David Cockroft, General Secretary, ITF.
