DELEGATES and trade union leaders backed the Morning Star’s 90th anniversary appeal at Congress yesterday.
The paper will enter its 10th decade on January 1, having been founded as the Daily Worker in 1930, and is seeking £90,000 to invest in new technology and promotion of its digital edition and multimedia formats.
Over the year, the Star will celebrate 90 years of courageous journalism during which it has often been the sole voice in the British media challenging the Establishment stranglehold on the political narrative.
Delegates praised the paper’s unique role as the voice of organised labour, with 11 national trade unions represented on its management committee — a number recently increased by the addition of shopworkers’ union Usdaw and the train drivers’ union Aslef.
“You may not agree with everything in it, but if you want coverage for a dispute your workers are involved in, there’s only one paper that will deliver for you — the Morning Star,” said Manuel Cortes, general secretary of white-collar transport union TSSA.
