Workers Memorial Day was marked in Portsmouth by 60 trade union members. The event on Sunday 28 April, 2013 organised by Portsmouth Trade Union Council, was attended by over 60 people. A minutes silence  was held at noon to remember all the workers killed and injured at work. Speakers from Unison, GMB, Unite and PCS unions attacked government safety deregulation.

An excellent letter from Pete Greeves on November 20.

I was unaware the Trade Union Bill had its third and final hearing in Parliament voted through by a Tory majority. No doubt all the Tory Norfolk MPs voted with the party as usual. They only represent the rich and the wealthy. People should wake up to what the trade unions did for the workers. The Tories want to destroy the unions so workers will have no rights or voice. The Tory paymasters and big businesses will love it, they will be able to treat people how they like. Welcome back to the Victorian days. The way the Tories have turned their back on the steel workers is a disgrace. Maggie destroyed the miners. Their hatred for the unions is there for all to see and the future of UK workers does not look good.
