Do You Remember ‘87?

As part of our View From The Floor area on CWU Left Click we are collecting memories from activists and members who were part of the British Telecom strike in 1987.

Mel Gorrie from Scotland No 1 branch has instigated and is leading the research for this project.

If you have personal memories, photos, leaflets etc. – or if your branch has records of the time please contact Mel via email at or the CWU Education & Training Dept at

In the meantime, here are a couple of news reports from the time.
