Cradley Heath Centenary

A Talk to mark the centenary of the Cradley Heath Chainmakers strike.

In 1910, women chainmakers from Cradley Heath in the Black Country protested against their very low wages. With the help of the National Federation of Women Workers and its leader, Mary Macarthur, the women organised a nine week strike which led to the right for a minimum wage. To celebrate the centenary, join Chris Coates, TUC Library Collections and watch a special film screening of 'Nothing to Lose:the strike of the women chainmakers, Cradley Heath 1910', with director, Sarah Boston.
