Letter of congratulations FBU

Letter of congratulations from Matt Wrack, FBU General Secretary. Staunch and longstanding supporters of the pickets and the Shrewsbury 24 Campaign.

25 March 2021

Dear Eileen

On behalf of the Fire Brigades Union, I wanted to pass on our congratulations and solidarity for the successful appeal in the Shrewsbury 24 case. This has been an extremely long and challenging campaign, and sadly some have not lived to see the outcome.

The trial and convictions reflected a class-based system of policing and law. It is a tragedy that it has taken so long to win this case. There are huge lessons for our movement in the trial and convictions, and what happened to a group of workers, simply for organising for improvements in work.

Thanks and solidarity.

Please let us know if there is anything more we can do.

In unity.

Matt Wrack
General Secretary
