NSSN meeting: Fight together against the Tories and bosses' Covid offensive

2021 has started with a bang, with teachers and school support staff in the National Education Union and Unison forcing Boris Johnson's Tory government to retreat on the reopening of schools. The Tories have also had to U-turn over their proposed review of employment laws and regulations post-Brexit.

Unions now need to come together immediately to draw on this template to fight for workplace safety in all sectors, and to stop the offensive by the Tories and the bosses to make workers pay for the Covid crisis with our lives and livelihoods. This includes Johnson's public sector pay freeze.

We've also seen workers in British Gas striking, the latest to confront vicious bosses' 'fire and rehire' measures. Many other workers are taking action as well.

The NSSN will continue to play our part in this struggle. Come to our meeting to discuss how we can build the fight for our lives and livelihoods. We will be hearing from workers and union reps involved in the increasing number of disputes.

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.
