Reviewing the History of a Big Idea
by Ron Todd and Others
The two lectures published here celebrate the publication of the history of the Transport & General Workers� Union. They show how the dream of its founders was the creation of �One Big Union�. With the formation of UNITE the Union, the realisation of that dream is brought that much closer. UNITE brings together people working in diverse occupations and locations, as did the founders of the T&G themselves all those years ago. In this booklet, Ken Coates and Tony Topham tell some of that story. For their full account, it is necessary as the reviewers urge, to read The Making of the Labour Movement.
