Upper Clyde Shipbuilding Work-in screenings

From the University of Glasgow Library:

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Upper Clyde Shipbuilding Work-in, The Mitchell Theatre in Glasgow is screening a series of films that were made at the time. The UCS Work-in lasted for fifteen months during 1971/2 and represented a desperate struggle for the Trade Unions and Shipyard workers, who were facing mass redundancy if the government did not subsidise the industry.

The screenings will take place from Wednesday 21st March to Friday 23rd March 2012.
