This event will celebrate the deposit at the Library of the original handwritten minutes of the Manchester and Salford Women’s Trade Union Council (MSWTUC) by the Mary Quaile Club, which came across them during research into the life of Mary Quaile, an organiser for the Council 1911-1919. They are an invaluable record of the work done by Mary and others to organise low-paid women into trade unions in Manchester.
The speakers will include Maggie Cohen, chair of the WCML Trustees, and Bernadette Hyland from the Mary Quaile Club. This event is free and has been organised jointly by the Mary Quaile Club and the Library
