Resolution on Liverpool Dockers

By the International Transport Workers' Federation, ITF Worldwide Inspectors' Seminar, London, 9–13 February 1998

  1. This meeting of 100 ITF Inspectors from over 40 countries in 5 continents held 9-13 February 1998 in London bow our heads in honour of your courageous 28 month struggle.
  2. Your commitment and the commitment of your families to endure the enormous hardships over the last 28 months has inspired working people the world over.
  3. We know that wherever working people are in struggle against rogue employers and governments, be it the Maritime Union of Australia fighting for its very existence, non-union operators on the West Coast of America or the deportation of union activists in the Port of Colombo—the fighting spirit of the Liverpool Dockers will be there.
  4. We further re-dedicate ourselves to keep the rebel flag of workers' rights flying in your honour.

We will never forget you.
