|Description: Dick was an active trade unionist during his working life. In 1989 he was sacked after resisting attempts to privatise the docks and abolish the NDLS. Despite winning a long industrial tribunal, Dick and his fellow trade unionists were not re-instated. Dick then found a job at the British Museum and eventually became chairman of the joint trade unions.|
