Labour Union Poster - Great London Dock Strike

Labour Union Poster Commemorating the Great London Dock Strike of 1889. This industrial dispute involving dock workers in the Port of London broke out on 14 August 1889, resulting in a victory for the 100,000 strikers and establishing strong trade unions amongst London dockers, one of which became the nationally important Dock, Wharf, Riverside and General Labourers' Union. The strike is widely considered a milestone in the development of the British labour movement, symbolising the growth of the New Unions of casual, unskilled and poorly paid workers, in contrast to the craft unions already in existence. The strike helped to draw attention to the problem of poverty in Victorian Britain and the dockers' cause attracted considerable public sympathy. Date: 1889

Father Gapon, the leader of the Red Sunday strike movement

One of the first authentic photographs of Father Gapon with General Fullon, the Governor of St Petersburg, amid the strikers. With national pride already at a low ebb due to the disastrous war with Japan, Russian workers went on strike in protest about low wages in January 1905. Father Gapon led around 300 petitioners to the Winter Palace on January 17th to plead for improved working conditions, universal suffrage and an end to the war. Troops opened fire on the demonstrators resulting in over 100 deaths. The massacre, known as Red Sunday, was universally regarded by socialists as a precursor to the Russian Revolution of 1917. Date: 28th January 1905, p102
