This is an interesting addition to the Archive, with a supplement that will be posted up next week. This eight page document covers a considerable range of topics, leading with a ‘Guarded Welcome for Industrial Relations Plan’. There are pieces on how ‘ICTU meets Govt on Economy’. Another takes the government to task for being ‘Clueless on Jobs’. The leaflet also has pieces on how ICTU ‘backs Dunnes Workers’.
A long piece considers the British Miners’ Strike and the response by Irish workers to that. A piece looks at the retirement of Paddy Devlin. And there are pieces which consider workplace safety. There’s also reports on the last page on international solidarity with trade unions in South Africa and the Americas.
