This week we were very pleased to receive a small collection of material from Alyson Lawson (nee Bunn), nurse and former branch secretary of the Confederation of Health Service Employees (COHSE) at St Mary’s Hospital, Harrow Road, London, during the 1982 pay dispute. The material consists of flyers, leaflets and press cuttings. The dispute also involved all the other NHS unions and the donated material supplements the library’s existing collections relating to the strike.

References to the dispute can already be found on our history website here and here.
