Description: Ben Tillett and John Burns (left and right foreground) of the dockers union at the Mansion House Conference in September 1889. The meeting was called in order to reach a settlement between the striking dockers and the employers. Cardinal Manning, the Lord Mayor and the Bishop of London also attended as mediators between the two sides. After a lengthy round of negotiations, the Mansion House committee persuaded the employers to meet practically all the dockers' demands.
