May Day greetings: Lend your support to the fight against the bosses
William Jarrett, Socialist Party Northern region May Day greetings organiser
Across the north, one of England's most industrially combative regions, shop stewards and rank-and-file trade unionists have relied on the Socialist newspaper to provide support and solidarity in disputes with employers.
At Tyneside Safety Glass, Kone lifts and escalators, Mears housing, Barbour clothing, and in the public sector, the Socialist has been there, helping to link up workers' struggles, and supporting trade unionists' discussions on how to win.
The Socialist also links fighting workers in England and Wales to the struggle for decent working conditions and socialism across the world.
In 2017-18 readers sent solidarity to Serbian postal workers in struggle, where bosses had viciously attacked terms and conditions and sacked the workers' leaders. Our fight with the bosses is global, and the Socialist consistently puts that fight front and centre for readers.
Through its reports of the work of the Committee for a Workers' International - the world socialist organisation the Socialist Party is affiliated to - as well as its coverage of the National Shop Stewards Network, we count on the Socialist to be a sounding board for the workers' movement.
Why not lend your voice? May Day greetings in the Socialist are a perfect way to reach thousands of readers across our movement, and help support the paper which works for their victory.
Your branch, committee or trades council - as well as campaign group or student society - can agree a suitable size and send us the image or ask us to design it for you. Join us in celebrating International Workers' Day 2018 with the socialist newspaper for workers and youth. Place greetings in the pages of the Socialist!
Workplaces - and any union bodies which can't send greetings - can use a sign-up sheet to get donations and book greetings from supporters
- The deadline for greetings is 5pm 11 April, so act now
