Victory for Judith, defend Moe

Bus rep and Socialist Party member Moe

Socialist Party member Moe Muhsin Manir, a Unite bus driver rep, is in a disciplinary on a gross misconduct charge at the Abellio Walworth garage in South London.

In December, at neighbouring Battersea, the same company had sacked another Unite rep, Judith Katera.

But we are delighted to report that after a fantastic campaign, Judith has been reinstated!

This shows that union-busting can be defeated. As usual, bosses target union reps to more easily attack workers.

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.
