Never A White Flag
The most historic labour dispute in NZ history: the 1951 confrontation and lockout of waterfront workers. This 151 strike was only broken after the government declared a state of emergency and used troops to clear the backlog on the wharves. A fascinating insight into unionism includes other accounts of the 1951 lockout and assessment of the tactics adopted by the Waterside Worker's Union. Jock Barnes' story is also placed in the wider context of NZ industrial relations at the turn of the century, and finds in it a lesson for the present situation where membership has fallen dramatically and where cynicism about unionism is widespread. 256 pages.

Descripción de la librería: A small neighbourhood second-hand book shop for people who want to read books. Besides the books in the shop, our claim to fame is having a catalogued inventory offsite of more than 50,000 books that can be brought in or posted the next day. We are not a rare-and-collectable bookshop, instead having a bit of this, and a bit of that. While everything's catalogued, it's more fun to browse the shelves. So come in and say g'day.
