Saturday 27 May 2017, 4-7pm – The Casa, Hope Street, Liverpool.
This event launches the book ‘Harry Constable – In his own words’, compiled by Bill Hunter.
Dockers set the pace for all the gains in wages and conditions during the 1940s and 50s. Most of their battles, against their bosses, the government and sometimes their own union, were led by rank and file committees. Harry Constable was one of their leaders who became known and respected among workers in all the major docks in Britain.
This book contains Harry’s recollections of growing up in London’s East End, his working life and political experiences, that made him one of the most outstanding and talented leaders in the unofficial trades union movements after the Second World War.
The event is with Liverpool singer/songwriter Alun Parry. There will be readings from the book and buffet.Back to calendar
