National Shop Stewards Network
Founding conference - Saturday 7 July

Hundreds of shop stewards from across Britain gathered in London last October to found a grass roots network capable of mobilising trade unionists to fight for workers' rights. Called by the RMT transport workers' union, the conference was supported by the TGWU, CWU, PCS, NUJ, NUM, CYMU, FBU, POA and BFAWU.
Addressed by the RMT's Bob Crow and a number of other union leaders, the meeting agreed to organise a shop stewards conference this year.
