From The Socialist newspaper, 4 April 2003

UNISON elections

Elections for UNISON's national executive council (NEC) are under way. Five Socialist Party members are standing as part of the UNISON United Left group: Raph Parkinson, national additional male seat, Jean Thorpe, East Midlands female seat, Roger Bannister, north west male seat, Adrian O'Malley, health care group male seat and Glenn Kelly, local government group general seat.

They are standing on a platform of a minimum wage of 8 an hour and increased public expenditure on schools, hospitals, housing etc to provide work for all. An end to - and the reversal of - all privatisation of all public services. Employment rights from day one.

End discrimination on the grounds of race, sex, sexuality, disability and all forms of prejudice. Democratic, member-led trade unions, with elected officials on a workers' wage. Disaffiliation from the Labour Party, for the creation of a new mass workers' party.

Leaflets are available from Bill Mullins on 020 8988 8767.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

  • The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
  • When the health crisis subsides, we must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
