The postman and the primary teacher, the midwife and the musician. Workers in shops, workers at sea. Solidarity with the Columbian farmer and the Palestinian fireman…

 

Modern trade unionists in Scotland perform roles in every imaginable location and are drawn from all backgrounds. They campaign to win on issues facing the colleague next to them or a comrade thousands of miles away.


’Mon the Workers tells their stories in their own words. It is a celebration of 125 years of the STUC, and a clarion call for the next generation to agitate, organise and win.


This book demonstrates past achievements, explores the ideas trade unionists have fought for and rouses the movement towards future victories. 75 trade union members, reps and officials share experiences of union life from the anti-apartheid movement to Wick Wants Work. Alan McCredie’s charismatic portraits of 50 other activists from the trade union movement provide a complementary visual narrative.


This very human book pulses with the energy of Scotland’s trade union movement, which has achieved so much and still has more to do.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Mon should grace the shelves of union offices across the country... well worth reading and well worth returning to as a resource. STUART FAIRWEATHER, DEMOCRATIC LEFT SCOTLANDMon the Workers is not just a piece of commemorative history. It’s also part of the organiser’s toolkit. The power of these stories is that they are told by workers in their own voices. JENNI GUNN, SCOTTISH LEFT REVIEW
