The first anti-trade union organisation to be banned was the British Medical Association, which was banned in 1866.
But, like the rest of the trade unions, it wasn’t officially outlawed until the early 1900s.
The first strike was organised by a group of doctors from the Royal College of Physicians in 1883.
The next, in 1906, was organised from within the Royal Society of Medical Professionals, which is why it has been called the first medical strike.
The CWS was a second attempt to break the strike-break link in 1908, when the Royal British Legion and the RMT union went to court to force the government to reinstate the CWDU, and were eventually dismissed.
But the CWRU was a third attempt to organise a strike in 1913.
The government was forced to back down, and the strike was suspended, as was the RMC.
The final attempt in 1913 was by the CWA.
But when the government was accused of having suppressed strikes, the CWU was one of the first to try to organise the general strike.
It was banned, and in the years since the first ban, the movement has continued to organise.
One of the most notable things about the CWC is the fact that it was the first major trade union to be given a licence to engage in industrial action, in 1892, after the death of the then-Labour leader, James Aynsley.
The trade unions that followed in the next five years were all banned.
However, the next major attempt to strike in the 1920s was made by the Scottish Socialist Party (now the Scottish Workers’ Party).
A strike was eventually called by the Communist Party, but it was only in 1935 that it got off the ground.
The biggest impact of the ban on the movement came in the 1980s, when, under the leadership of the current trade union leader, Jimmy McNulty, the CPB was banned.
Jimmy McNabb, who was the leader of the CPW in the 1970s and 1980s and who later became the head of the National Union of Workers, told The Guardian in January: “I think the ban was probably the biggest blow to the CWMI [CWI] since the ban in the early 70s.”
He said that while he felt the CP should have been allowed to get back on the job, the ban put an end to any possibility of the party getting a licence.
He added that the CP could not work as an organisation “in the face of such a ban”.
He said: “What we are doing today is fighting for the working class in the industrial heartlands.
It’s an important job for the CWI, but we cannot do it if we are not allowed to work.”
Jimmy McNab is one of a number of figures who have described the CWF as the only union that can really be called a union of workers.
What they have done is have been the only one that has organised the industrial strike and have organised in the most dangerous industries.”
