A member of the National Union of Shop, Distributive and Allied Workers (later USDAW), he was also President of the London Co-operative Society. He was a key figure in the creation of the left unity coalition, the 1960 Campaign Committee, which took control of the Society in 1962 despite a vicious smear campaign. Clayden died aged 90.
