tu22. Rowntree demonstration
In February 1981, 500 workers at Wilson-Rowntree’s East London factory were sacked for striking in protest at the dismissal of three colleagues. Wilson-Rowntree was a subsidiary of the British company Rowntree-Mackintosh. The AAM campaigned with the British unions GMWU, USDAW and TGWU to make the company reinstate the sacked workers and recognise the South African Allied Workers Union (SAAWU). This leaflet publicised a march in York, where the company had its headquarters.
