2011 is an important anniversary year for the trade union movement. It marks
• 100 years since the 1911 Transport Workers strike
• 50 years since the Council of Europe’s Social Charter
• 25 years since the Wapping dispute and
• 10 years since the Friction Dynamics Strike.
2011 also promises to be a year of struggle as unions fight to defend jobs, pay, pensions and services.
So what lessons can we learn from our past to inform our future?
