Big unions losing grip on rank and file: uncontrollable workers rising!Posted: April 3, 2012
Here’s a quick note of some recent examples of working people taking matters into their own hands. When a court can set a “cooling-off period” to take bargaining pressure off of scum employers or give out “back to work orders“, and government can write regulations against their own employees, is it any wonder that folks no longer trust in “process” to get results?
Workers with even fewer legal and social protections have taken similar actions in the past and in many cases paid dearly for their efforts. As part of a commitment to anti-racism and decolonization, solidarity across legally-constructed ‘classes’ and borders must be built and maintained. This is part of our common struggle: to be free from forced labour.
