The Tolpuddle Martyrs, the Women Matchworker’s Strike, the Shrewsbury 24 (3), and the Miners’ Strike 1984-5 took over the student workshop at this year’s Annual Delegates Conference.

Led by Nichola Smith, the Society’s student membership officer, almost twice as many delegates as attended the first workshop in 2018 took part and split into teams to find out more about the iconic trade union disputes.

Other workshop activities included learning about the Society’s structure, What is ADC?, speaking at conference, a session by Equalise, as well as short presentations from the SoR president, Sue Webb, and vice-president, Chris Kalinka.
