Doris Morris. Leaving Jamaica in 1956 with a sense of adventure, upon arrival in England Doris Morris found work as seamstress, and then as a childminder. She joined the Decca Radar company in Battersea in 1970, soon becoming a shop steward for the Electrical, Electronic, Telecommunications and Plumbing Union (later forming part of UNITE), where her leadership and talent for public speaking led to her taking a more senior role as convenor. Doris is the mother of activist Olive Morris. This was her memorial programme for her funeral. ref MORRIS/1.
