Cover of the National Union of Public Employees' Journal, 1951. This back cover depicts in extremely graphic terms NUPE's attitude towards "nons" (non-union members) in local government and the health service. In 1951 NUPE negotiated terms and conditions for hospital workers on what were called "Whitley Councils", government-sponsored bodies where unions, professional bodies, employers and ministry officials were all represented. When improvements were won they went to all workers, including non-members, who NUPE considered to be "free riding" on their strong membership.
