United They Stood: The Story of the UK Firefighters' Dispute 2002–2004


Manufacturer: Lawrence & Wishart

Product Information

"During the winter months of 2002–03 there was played out the most significant and bitter industrial dispute in the UK sice the miners' strike of 1984–85. There then followed a further eighteen months of protracted negotiations, overshadowed by the Government's preparations for invasion of Iraq, constant threats to ban strikes, and the passing of draconian anti-union laws. United They Stood tells the story of the firefighters' dispute and shines a beacon on the way the New Labour Government was prepared to go to extraordinary lengths to thwart – though not always successfully – the ambitions of a relatively small and dedicated group of public servants, who were seeking pay justice after years of decline in their relative pay, despite significant increases in productivity and skill levels."

Roger Seifert and Tom Sibley, Lawrence & Wishart, 2005.
