Maritime Union welcomes release of 1951 lockout papers

The Maritime Union of New Zealand has welcomed the release of secret SIS papers on the 1951 waterfront lockout to Archives New Zealand.

Maritime Union General Secretary Trevor Hanson says the 1951 waterfront lockout was the most significant industrial event in living memory in New Zealand.

He says the Maritime Union still counts veterans of the 1951 dispute amongst its retired members.
