TUC women's conference
A DELEGATION of Dudley hospitals UNISON strikers were given a standing ovation at last week's TUC women's conference in Scarborough. John Monks, the TUC general secretary, was embarrassed when questioned about the TUC's catering contract with Sodexho, the company running the inhumane asylum seekers' voucher scheme and many PFI contracts in the health service.
Although most conference motions were uncontroversial, a motion criticising the Labour government for failing to tackle women's poverty was passed.
