DATUC supports Midlands TUC Women's Chainmakers Festival

The Women's Chainmakers Festival is an annual event in Cradley Heath, celebrating a strike by the women chainmakers there. It will be held on 11th July 2015 from 11 am - 6 pm.

The Chainmakers festival will be held on Cradley Heath High Street - the iconic heart of the famous struggle where the Chainmakers worked and lived - and fought their successful ten week dispute to secure a minimum wage for their sector.

A family friendly street festival involving market stalls, fun fair rides, speeches, street theatre, music and debate, the 2015 festival promises to be a hugely successful and enjoyable day, and one which Derby Area Trades Union Council is proud to support.

DATUC supports Mid's TUC Women's Chainmakers Festival with a £100 donation. Richard and Moz President and Secretary of DATUC present cheque to Lee Barron Regional Secretary and Joe Regional Chair.
