Disability History Month is an annual event creating a platform to focus on the history of struggle for equality and human rights.
In 2020 ASLEF celebrated the event for the first time, with a number of articles and online actions raising awareness of the issues facing train drivers with a disability, and of the work of the new Disabled Members Forum.
Forum members John McCue, Tom Harcourt, Ian Starling and Paul Miles wrote blog posts for the ASLEF website about their experiences as train drivers living with a disability.
