Speaker: Tom Kay
Trade unions are organisations that defend working class people within capitalism. Faced with the power of bosses in the workplace, individuals can’t win by kicking back themselves. But organising collectively gives our class strength—whether it’s fighting for higher pay, health and safety or standing up to a bullying manager.
Unions have seen an increase in membership since the coronavirus crisis, which has hit workers the hardest. But unions have a bureaucracy—the full-time officials who face almost no accountability.
As socialists, how do we organise effectively within unions to build workers’ confidence and lead the fight for a better system?
Join us to discuss this important challenge!
