Public Sector Workers Go On Strike Together

After resounding ballot results Local Government workers in England and Wales from UNISON, UNITE amd GMB will today be taking the first day strike  of a campaign of industrial action fighting for pay and rejecting the insulting 1% pay offer from the employers.

They will be joined in this day of action by teachers, fire fighters and Civil Servants who have their own disputes around pay, pensions and conditions with their own employers.

The government reaction is tragicomic. They say ”the action will damage the recovery”. Having ruined the economy and driven millions of working families to food banks while subsidising and protecting their speculator friends, their real worry is the recovery of the people’s will to fight.

If Cuba proves that socialism doesn’t work, does Haiti prove that capitalism doesn’t work? (And remember, Cuba is under a 60-yr US blockade while Haiti gets billions in US aid.)
