In 2018 the TUC turned 150 and wanted to mark this special anniversary with a look back on it’s history and to celebrate the amazing achievements of trade unionists over the last 150 years. As part of the TUC 150 project we were commissioned to produce 150 stories marking the achievements of trade unionists whose stories would surprise, move and inspire.
150 stories was a huge undertaking and was the biggest story gathering project we have ever led, but we delved into the TUC archives and got on the phone to the unionists of today and produced stories about some of the most inspiring activists in the country. But we made them a little bit different. Fancy looking at the CV of Labour party founder, Kier Hardie? Ever wanted to know what a pre-The Royle Family Ricky Tomlinson said in the dock during his trial for union activities? And why did Jeannie Mole reject corsets?
One of our favourite stories was about the Match Women’s Strike, in fact it’s inspired Alex so much that she wants to write a book about them! But it also proved to be the public’s favourite too with that one story alone receiving 80,000 impressions, 2,000 engagements on Twitter, and a Facebook reach of over 60,000 people, with over 3,600 reactions, comments and shares.
