Miliband and unions

Workers create all value and wealth. Organised workers are the most powerful force in society and the most democratic. Most trade unions do not affiliate to the Labour Party. Out of power the Labour Party tells the trade unions not to rock the boat. In power the Labour Party says not to rock the boat. The Labour Party seeks to manage capitalism through parliament. Trade unions seek to represent workers’ interests against capital. Parliament is in the hands of capital. Parliament is controlled by the EU treaties and US foreign policy and the City of London. Trying to get more working class representatives into the Labour Party to get into town halls and parliament is an outdated, sentimental misguided project and a touching reminder of the worthy aspirations of trade unionists in the post war social democratic welfare society that has disappeared under the heat of neoliberalism.

A new state and form of workers control has to be built for the interests of wealth creators to not just be represented, but to govern and dominate.

We are living in difficult times, being encouraged to socially distance ourselves. It is essential that our union organisation remains intact. Indeed, in this environment our collective organisations are not only needed but should be made to thrive. https://digital.tuc.org.uk/working-remotely-for-trade-unions/
