CWU Broad Left Affiliates To ISR

ON 10 JANUARY representatives from International Socialist Resistance (ISR) were invited to speak at the annual meeting of the Communication Workers' Union (CWU) broad left.

Pav Alam, Socialist Party member and newly elected bulletin editor, had suggested an ISR speaker on the campaign to support Colombian trade unionists and other ISR campaigns, such as against top-up fees and for a decent minimum wage for all with no youth exemptions.

Pav, who proposed the affiliation and Steve Wootton from the South West who seconded it, both spoke on the need for the union, and especially the broad left, to orientate towards young workers and that affiliating to ISR provided an opportunity for a two-way learning process. It is not always clear to young people what the point of joining a union is and trade unionists are not always aware of what issues are the most important to young people.

We hope this will be the start of closer co-operation between the lefts in the trade unions and ISR. Socialist Party and ISR members in other unions should consider similar affiliations. One of ISR's main campaigns is against low pay.
