About the Conference
In the early 1900s many of Dublin’s residents lived in appalling slums. The Irish TGWU
struggled for better conditions which, in 1913, resulted in 300,000 workers and 27 unions
being locked out of their workplaces. Liverpool workers came out in support of the actions of their Irish comrades and refused to handle traffic from Dublin.
Irish workers suffered a huge injustice at this time, but what lessons can we learn from this dispute and how does it inform our response to social injustice in today’s society.
In this centenary year of the Dublin Lockout , Tony Donaghey, General Secretary of the
Connolly Association, and Lynn Collins, Regional Secretary of the North West TUC, will
consider the lessons we can learn from this historic event.
