Scope and content

During his period as an industrial journalist for the 'Socialist Worker', 1972-1978, Flynn worked closely with activists from the Glasgow branch of the Transport and General Workers Union and with Tom Woolf and John Pickering, both of them W H Thomson solicitors covering lawsuits against Central Asbestos in Bermondsey, London, and Acre Mill in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire (the latter not much documented here).
