Support the Casa

The Dockers Dispute of 1995 – 1997, was a monumental battle by a small group of sacked Dockers to fight for their jobs, and their rights after being locked out and sacked by management. In lasting for two and half years it was also one of the UK’s longest running disputes. The sacked Dockers were small in number, but due to their commitment, and their inventive and often inspirational tactics, they punched far above their weight, industrially, politically and culturally. Ultimately they lost the dispute, but their fight has had a much longer social and cultural impact than could have been expected.

 

 

I was a supporter of their fight for justice and the return of their jobs. I was on the picket line almost daily, and took part in organising many, many demonstrations, activities and events to support them. I had just returned to University when the dispute broke out, and often found myself dashing away from mass meetings to get to lectures, or spending time I should maybe have been studying to organise support.
