THE WOMEN CHAINMAKERS’ FESTIVAL - 2 JULY 2016
The RMT will be supporting the annual Women Chainmakers’ Festival in Cradley Heath on Saturday 2 July 2016.
This is a family fun day that celebrates an historic strike by women chainmakers in 1910 to fight for a minimum wage.
The festival has events planned from 11am to 5pm with a banner parade along the High Street at 3.15pm leading to a workers picnic in Mary Macarthur Gardens. There will also be an all day children’s entertainment area. For more information please see https://www.tuc.org.uk/events/chainmakers-festival-2-july
If you are able to attend, please do stop by the RMT Midlands Regional Council stall at the rally to say hello.
