Workers’ Memorial Day

1 04 2014

To mark Workers’ Memorial Day on 28th April, North Staffs TUC invite you to a ceremony in remembrance of those who have lost their lives at work.

We usually hold an event at the Workers’ Memorial tree outside the Potteries Museum in Hanley but with this year being the anniversary of the Miners’ strike, we decided that it would be fitting to hold the ceremony at a memorial to miners. We have chosen the Sneyd Colliery Memorial  in Burslem.

Please meet at the Peace Centre, Burslem School of Art, Queen Street, ST6 3EJ from 6.30pm for refreshments and then we will march with banners to the Sneyd Colliery memorial at 7pm for speakers, song and a minute silence.  The memorial is on the Market Place in Burslem, ST6 4AT – opposite the Queen’s Theatre. There is car parking at the rear of the Peace Centre.

Confirmed speakers:

Brenda Procter – National Chair of Women Against Pit Closures and the North Staffs Miners’ Wives Action Group.

Steve Pearce – former miner and health and safety officer at Trentham Colliery

Jason Hill  –  Musicians’ Union and President of NSTUC

Dave Lyddon – Keele University and Colleges Union and NSTUC executive
