Annual TUC Northern Regional conference 30th March 2019

Sunderland Trades Union Council Orgreave resolution – seconded by Unison – the motion got passed with flying colours.

Sunderland Trades Union council calls for trade union councils, trade unions and the TUC to campaign and make a formal request that every local authority, town council and parish council in the country to table a motion similar to what Sunderland City Council did in January 2019. We would like to request that the home secretary orders a full public inquiry into the deployment and actions of the police on the 18th June 1984. We would also request the Home Secretary is to hold meaningful discussions with the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign, the NUM and concerned MP’s

We believe that issues relating to events at the picketing of Orgreave on 18th June 1984 are of local, regional and national importance.
