Home > News > Commemorating the Railway Strike of 1911

This weekend we commemorate the anniversary of the Railway Strike of 1911, where thousands of workers joined together to protest against low pay and poor working conditions. We also remember the two people who died tragically during the strike here in Llanelli.

It’s important to reflect on the causes of the unrest, and consider what still needs to be done to improve conditions for today’s fragmented workforce and tackle the increasing insecurity of modern work.
