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.

In dealing with Covid19, Collectivism and Science have shown the way world wide; in Britain it's been Trade Unions and the NHS. Capitalism has shown itself unwilling & incapable of dealing with this crisis.

Neo-liberal managerial approach, from a neo-liberal political party. More evidence for ending the illusion that the Labour Party can ever be socialist which is based on a deeper illusion that the Parliamentary system and existing state can be reformed in the interests of workers.

The British Labour Party ending its own furlough scheme a month before the national scheme, and letting employees go, in the midst of a global pandemic and on the cusp of an economic depression - under new management indeed:

In the USA we see a contradiction between aspects of neoliberalism; i.e. between authoritarianism of the state repressive apparatus and liberal economics of cuts in public services. Both aspects end up damaging workers.
