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.

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.)
