Cossor's strike, 1946

In 1945, there were 2293 strikes - the highest number recorded to that time - and in 1946, 2205. This article in the April 1946 Challenge, published by the Young Communist League, reports young women at the Cossor radio factory in Highbury on strike for 2d an hour wage rise. In 1939, Cossor's had switched to developing radar but manufacture of radio sets continued after the war. At that time, the company was based in Cossor House which is still extant, having been renamed Ladbroke House. It later formed part of the London Metropolitan University. Many of the building's interior art deco furnishings remain.
