Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Lord Bill Morris of Handsworth OJ is the first black man to rise to the top of any major British institution. When, in 1991, he became general secretary of the Transport and General Workers Union - then the largest trade union in the country - it marked a huge break in the culture of British working class attitudes towards racial discrimination. This is the story of his rise to the top of British public life after arriving in Birmingham in the mid-1950s, aged 16, to join his mother who had come to England a short time earlier.

Inhaltsangabe: From the shop floor to national iconic status, the ascendancy of a young Jamaican is traced up to his election as the first black immigrant to hold the position of general secretary of the Transport and General Workers Union (TGWU), the UK's largest trade union. This account follows Morris as he joins the Transport and General Workers' Union in 1958 and moves from shop steward to full-time union official and holder of various district and national positions-ultimately to the pinacle of the organization. In addition to documenting his rise to the powerful and prestigious role in the TGWU, this survey examines other Morris achievements such as becoming the first black immigrant to join the government board of the Bank of England and serve as president of the Trades Union Congress.
