Teachers’ Solidarity is Vital

Teachers’ leaders in the NUT and NASUWT have released plans for rolling strike action to begin in June and continue in the autumn term, in support of the ongoing campaign to defend pay, pensions and working conditions. The stakes are high. Gove has declared war on teaching unions, reminiscent of Thatcher’s destruction of the NUM in the 80s. What is clear is that the government will stop at nothing to destroy teaching unions. The advent of Academies and Free Schools is the opening salvo in their strategy; enabling these schools to derecognise unions. This is a ‘fight to the death’. Either Gove and his coalition suffer a significant defeat or teachers’ power to organise will be emasculated and the unions will be smashed. At this crucial time teachers cannot afford disunity. The struggle will be long and hard. Teachers are not only defending themselves, they are defending the future of education from spivs and privateers who can only see the quickest way to profit.

Failure of government and employers to endure decent sick pay will lead to many more deaths. Trade Unions have set the standard by demanding sick pay and health and safety over the decades and particularly during this pandemic.

EU Is still trying to rule Britain, Barnier tries demanding EU vessels have access to British waters otherwise there will be exclusion from EU markets; that there is a risk of a no deal. We must have sovereign rights over our fishing grounds.

EU fishing company bosses talk about winning a game with respect to Britain's fishing waters; but the struggle over fishing rights is serious. Ask Venezuelans if defence of sovereignty is a game, or Palestinians whether gaining it is mere play.

The EU has realised that Brexit is no game; it is the serious desire of the British population. Countries are panicking about the prospect of no-deal, as it will hurt economies in ways they refused to accept. Britain has the upper hand. Get Brexit done!
