Report from Blackburn Trades Council Meeting

Two of us went to the meeting in the evening. We spoke about our dispute and our response to the attacks we faced by the company. We answered questions from the delegates and gave out leaflets. The trades council agreed to give a donation of £50, write a letter of protest to the company, write a message of support to the strikers and give out copies of our leaflets and collections sheets to trade unionist holding meetings in their offices.
