Liverpool: Support 15% pay rise for NHS

There was a bold, lively demo in front of Aintree hospital on 26 August. It's great that NHS staff have taken a bold step and are continuing with action for a 15% pay rise.

There was great support from passersby. But it mustn't stop there.

The demo was predominantly nursing staff, who see the quality of care they provide compromised by NHS privatisation. The unions need to take up the 15% pay rise demand.

Workers should join unions and get organised. If the union leaders refuse to fight for workers, then the workers must make them. When workers come together, they can win.

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.
