Historical Directory vol 6

John Smethurst and Peter Carter have let us know that volume 6 of the Historical Directory of Trade Unions has now been given an ISBN number (978-0-7546-6683-7) and is with Ashgate Publishers. The aim is to get it out for Christmas, at a price that has yet to be decided.

The volume covers unions organising in government and public service, dockyards, shipbuilding, engineering, leather, pottery and the glass industry along with some bits missed from earlier volumes. It will be followed by an index of all six volumes on CD only.
