SHREWSBURY PICKET 1972
EDM #310
Tabled 23 June 2010
2010-12 Session
That this House recalls the national trade union building workers strike of 1972 and the subsequent arrest a year later of 24 pickets, the sentences handed to six of them, and the long imprisonment served by Des Warren and Ricky Tomlinson; notes the legacy in the construction industry since the 1972 strike, including an unregulated industry, increasing casualisation through bogus self-employment, an appalling accident and death rate and renewed blacklisting of workers, as was the case after the 1972 dispute; and supports the campaign by the Trades Union Congress, Unite and the Union of Construction, Allied Trades and Technicians, for the Home Secretary to release all secret papers related to the Shrewsbury case and to instigate a public inquiry.
