Trades Unions & The War

This event in our programme looks at two examples of how the labour movement reacted to the war. Kevin Morgan will look at trade union radicals who from the earliest months of the war took up an internationalist and anti-war stance, and who gathered increasing support as the war went on. Their contribution to the anti-war movement has often been overlooked because of the unions’ majority pro-war stance. Ian Wright introduces his new book on the Forest of Dean Miners’ Association and the war.
