Shop : Books : We'll all be Union Men Bob Scarth - Joseph Arch and his union

We'll all be union men tells the story of Joesph Arch and the Agricultural Workers' Union.

Born in Warwickshire, Joseph Arch became the first agricultural Labour MP. We'll all be union men tells of his long and active life in his founding of the National Agricultural Labourers' Union in 1872.

Bob Scarth writes a book that is more than the story of a great trade union leader; it is an account of the lives of ordinary working people, their hopes and dreams and their struggle to build a union that would make life better for those who followed them.
