Should the Trades Union Congress apologise for their racism?

Recommended Posts

Leftist bandwagon jumpers the TUC have stood up for the rights of the Windrush generation and used this issue to make political capital.

However around the same time as the Windrush the TUC lead a Racist campaign against ex Polish Soldiers and their families who settled in Britain by getting their thuggish members to resist against the employment of Polish workers.

My Grandparents were most probably victims of the TUC's discrimination and this has given rise to me having hurty feelings about this issue, perhaps Frances O'Grady could apologise or even better send me some compensation.

You are getting confused.  To be the victim of racism, you cannot be white.  Falls at the first hurdle   o.O

 

Of course, this is not my view but appears to be the position taken by SJWs

These Union types like to talk about Lord Rothermere's Daily Mail supporting Hitler but strangely remain silent of their own persecution of minorities.

I'm sure trade unions took a dim view of workers that arrived from the colonies after the War.

I know of many polish soldiers and airmen who were blocked from working in certain organisations - my own father amongst them.

I did not know that the anti-Polish 'thing' was organised by the TUC on a national level. I had heard, for example, of the miners saying that they would go on strike if Poles were hired. Many Poles who fought in the war - and who were once gratefully thanked for doing so during the war - later found it very hard to get jobs. Many skilled workers such as doctors, academics and scientists having to take the most manual of jobs to survive.

I also, from a personal level, feel that public sector organisations were discriminating against people like myself well into the 80's. I can't prove that of course but my own personal experiences convinces me that I am correct.

 

Also, don't forget, the Free Poles were staunchly anti-communist. That too was probably a big factor in the TUC's stance. Perhaps it continued in the union movement / public sector for many, many decades.

IIRC some parts of the railways were a no-coloureds closed shop until well into the 1960s.
