From The Socialist newspaper, 7 January 2009

For a fighting Usdaw leadership

Socialist Party member Robbie Segal is standing for election as president of the shopworkers' union Usdaw. The election of a fighting trade union leadership is particularly important now, as tens of thousands of shopworkers are being made redundant.

Robbie argues that the only real way to solve the problems facing retail workers is to take the major retail companies into public ownership. She has pledged to launch a mass campaign against job losses and for the public ownership of any company threatening redundancies.

Vote Robbie for a fighting, campaigning Usdaw.

The election runs from 19 January to 13 February.
