Venezuelan Labour Law

The Institute of Employment Rights and Venezuela Solidarity Campaign yesterday celebrated the publication of their study of the incredible new Labour and trade union laws in Venezuela signed by Hugo Chavez and the unions on May Day 2013.

The laws are extensive and decisively tip the balance from capital to labour and they are enforced strongly.

The Venezuelan laws are an inspiration and reflect the detailed proposals made by thousands of workplace and people’s assembly meetings.

Practically everything we want they have got.

With the US sabre rattling more seriously against Venezuela and actively considering sanctions, our efforts to support Venezuela by not letting them get isolated is even more important.

Apart from ensuring that the truth about Venezuela and the right wing violence being perpetrated against it is understood and widely known, we have to free ourselves from the yoke of anti trade unionism and legislation in Britain and recognise that most of this comes directly from the EU.

No good clapping Venezuela if we are clapped out ourselves.

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.
