One Big Union

The red hand of Ulster serves as the emblem of the Irish Transport & General Workers Union, founded by Jim Larkin in 1909. It was led by James Connolly from 1914 to 1916. Winifred Carney, from Bangor, founded the Irish Textile Workers’ Union in Belfast in 1912 and was personal secretary to Connolly. A border of rope frames the main image of carters working on the docks, above.
