ABSTRACT

The FOC Campaign is the joint responsibility of the Seafarers’ and Dockers’ Sections and it is the Fair Practices Committee (FPC) which has, since 1952, provided the key forum by which both sections’ representatives have come together to review the day to day running and effectiveness of the Campaign. The involvement of the dockers’ unions, whether through direct action or through co-operation with seafarers’ unions, has continued to be vital to the success of the Campaign.
