The Rank and File | Full Film

June 27, 2020



The Wilkinson Glass factory in the midlands believe they are a caring employer – even providing a free bag of coal as a Christmas bonus – and have always had a good relationship with the local trade union. But their workers see things differently when faced by a management offensive and form a Rank and File Strike Committee. The committee expect harassment from management but surely their union leaders in London will stand by them. Won’t they?

Jim Allen’s script was inspired by the Pilkington Glass strike in St. Helens and closely follows the events of a strike that had taken place there in 1970. It was written at a time when the Labour governmant was proposing legislation to make unofficial strikes illegal and when trade union leaders were seen to be too close to the government.

Directed by Ken Loach

  • My favourite director since I was six and I saw "Cathy Come Home".
    For all the evil of the Tories since the 1950s, I never thought I'd see
    one deliberately let 30,000 Britons die at home for their fascist philosophy.
    Hope dear Ken Loach gets to deal with Coronavirus : when Britain declared war on itself.

  • To those who thought things were bad in the days when the unions had some clout, and could – and did make a difference to the conditions of the working man. Compare those days with today, where workers have little or no representation. It saddens me to see how the working classes blame each other, while the corporate capitalists hoard their profits overseas, and get away with not paying their taxes. The billionaire owned propagandist media have a lot to answer for.

  • We really do need artists like Loach or Garnet now
    days, their work was
    spellbinding and made you
    think something no one
    is doing today. A little
    known fact is that most
    of the cast are stand up
    comics and they are great.

  • Awful the way the haves have treated the working class. Oh when there's a war it's a different story. The poorly educated have always been duped into waving the flag for Queen and country then abused when there no longer needed….Man's inhumanity.

  • I lived on a council estate in Castleford during the miners strike. One bloke near us lived on his own in a flat, seperated from his wife and kids. He was skint and desperate during the strike so he went back to work. Got all his windows broke for his trouble.

  • Quite possibly the most corrupt group of wankers that ever represented industrial workers in Great Britain has to have been the TUC. They were and still are nothing more than SCUM….

  • A free bag of coal at Chrimbo!? Ah, yes, them were the days. And where we're now heading back to, with Tories having started the process, and Corbyn (if he wins) finishing the process. And if you're REALLY lucky, you can still afford the match to light the coal!!!!!!!!!!

  • An Academic can never be in the 'Wrong'….Universities or so called 'Higher Education' has become an American Finance shield to keep 'Praising' so called 'youth' when the 'spirit' inside the so called 'Educated' has been 'Kidnapped' by Cash/Life 'needs'…….So called Parent/Youth 'Masses Ignorance that Requires Guidance' i.e Bank Watchdogging…..Rye vita,Sued & 2 Bobs screwed is the new 'Temperance' movement for En-suite 'Greed' Shopping gone 'Green'(Man) Friday FIFA types …later to switch to 'Basketcase Ball' Americano UK, probably?

    These guys in this are Actors…..the Real Massive loss overall is the Cosy Coal Heating non Plastic,Million Miles from 'Robot' Backdrops of 'Tomorrows World of Now?

    Why a Little Place like here? Role Model of Darth Vader intimidation Union 'Flaggging'?

    If only the 'Old Brits' all looked like Sidney Poitier back in those Days……'selling' PR Nice Respect 'Robot Futures' would have become a Hell of a Big Issue for some time to come……Billions still in 'Real' Undeveloped World areas nowadays are 'Readymade' Scabs Presumably in Exit Stage 'Entrance' to Keep Up the 'Neo – Cost Effective' Standards.

    At Least the Intellegencia will get the 'Respect' they constantly Keep Advertising with that constant source of 'Union Wannabies' of Tomorrow?
