Slaughter of the unions

One trade unionist recently described the war on trade union activists currently taking place throughout the public services and sections of the private sector as making Britain “like Colombia without the murder”. There has indeed been a systematic attack by Labour and Tory Councils alike on union activists seeking to organise resistance to the blitzkrieg of cuts. The war on civil service activists is rife throughout government departments. The subterranean attack on facilities time has now been joined by the more overt strategy of making activists redundant, using disciplinary procedures and bullying. Depriving trade union activists of their livelihoods has been a well used tactic by employers, but never to such a scale as it is in Britain today. Add to this the fact that hardly any young people are active in unions, only 2 in 8 workers in the private sector are covered by collective bargaining and collective bargaining in the public sector has been largely prevented for the last 4 years and we have a cocktail of unique difficulties for the unions to overcome.

Liberals & many on the 'left' exaggerate differences between Trump & Biden; click to see what would make a real difference.
There is no effective “freedom” in a society in which working people live in poverty & billionaires live like parasites.

Biden opposed moves to rebuild Afghanistan, advising a policy of fighting terrorism in the country. He also opposed withdrawal of US troops, which Trump carried out.

@theworkerorguk Which international conflicts has biden spoken more violently than trump on? Evidence please.

Biden's regime will hold on to enclaves in the North East and work alongside Turkish invaders, continuing sanctions against the Syrian government. In general, Biden wants US global leadership, which he sees as being diminished by Trump's inconsistencies.

Biden intends to have tighter sanctions on DPRK, and to have stricter preconditions with respect to engaging on talks. The Democrat's president also intends to strengthen an alliance against North Korea. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-biden-northkorea-analysi/biden-on-north-korea-fewer-summits-tighter-sanctions-same-standoff-idUSKBN25G2QO
