Reading time: 3 min
Pat Rafferty comments, “Our trade union history is often recorded and told by others. This film and Mark Lyon’s book The Battle of Grangemouth, tell the story from the trade union workers perspective – we need to encourage more good work that tells our history, told from our perspective.”
Stevie Deans adds, “It has been great to reflect on whats happened over the last two years since the documentary was released. The film is now shown on all Unite education courses in Scotland but we do need to get the film out into communities via branch screenings, so if you are on a course and want to hold a branch screening please ask for a copy.”
A copy of Mark Lyon’s book: The Battle of Grangemouth is available from Lawrence and Wishart at lwbooks.co.uk or a number of other outlets. Unite members get a discount by entering UNITE17
