Talk on 1951 waterfront lockout – and what’s happening today

The final session in the initial short series of NZ History talks organised by the Canterbury Workers Educational Association is:

The 1951 Waterfront Lockout – then and now
speaker: Philip Ferguson
7pm, Tuesday, March 6
WEA, 59 Gloucester St, Christchurch

The talk will mainly concentrate on 1951, what happened and how and why, and its relevance to today; it will also look at the current dispute at the Ports of Auckland.  If there’s a reasonable turnout it would be good to discuss what can be done here and now to support the Auckland wharfies, whose fight is important to the whole union movement and working class.
