The early twenty-first century has witnessed a dramatic renaissance of industrial activism by Britain's transport workers.This book tells the remarkable story of how the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers has led the way in fighting back against almost 25 years of government policies designed to destroy workers' rights and dismantle whole parts of Britain's transport infrastructure.A timely reminder of the industrial origins of the labour movement, Never on Our Knees explores the historic roots of the revival of industrial trade unionism and demonstrates how the courageous steps taken by activists in the past can inform and encourage the activists of today.
