General Secretary of the Rail, and Maritime and Transport Union, and one of the United Kingdom’s foremost trade union leaders, Bob Crow died in a hospital here on Tuesday. Mr. Crow was 51. He is reported to have died of an aneurysm followed by heart attack.

A widely respected figure Mr. Crow led the Tube strike last month against the plans by London Mayor Boris Johnson’s decision to close down ticket offices in London, a move that would have resulted in thousands of job losses.

He won a settlement for the workers after a two-day strike that paralysed the most used transport system in the city.
