Socialist Party National trade Union meeting
Open to all members of the Socialist Party
Saturday 30 August
11.30am - 4.30pm
Conway Hall, Red Lion Square,
Nearest tube Holborn.
1. What is the way forward for the trade unions and workers' struggles in Britain?
2. Reports of the Socialist Party's work in the unions.
A discussion on how to develop and expand a strong base for Marxism in every union today.
The developments across the unions in Britain are beginning to change the face of the class struggle.
The capitalist press has belatedly woken up to the situation as they try to explain the reason for the elections of the new Left trade union leaders.
After years of telling us that workers are not interested in acting together to further their interests, they now find it difficult to explain current events.
The Socialist Party has deep roots in the unions and we have explained many times the process of disillusionment in the union leaders, who offered little but 'partnership' and class collaboration with the bosses.
The problems of the Blair government have been highlighted by these elections with most of the new leaders declaring their opposition to the policies of New Labour.
How far will this process continue? How can the Socialist Party develop further support in the workplaces and the unions? What policies should we be fighting for now?
All Socialist Party members are invited to come to this important meeting.
If you need accommodation for the Friday night then contact Bill Mullins or Ken Smith on 020 8988 8764 or 020 8988 8778.
