What unions do we have, and what do we need?

Uncaptive Minds Discussion Forum


The next of The Commune’suncaptive minds

’ forums on “capitalism and the working class today” is on the subject of “what unions do we have, and what do we need?


The meeting, taking place at the Lucas Arms near London’s King’s Cross from 7pm on Monday 30th, will be looking at the decomposition of the official labour movement in recent decades; the signs of revival of class struggle and the new forms of activism taking place among the casual workforce; and the dynamics of rank and file and bureaucracy, and how we can empower self-organisation.


The speakers leading off the discussion are:

John Moloney, Independent Left Candidate for PCS Deputy General Secretary

Fabien Liberski, Convenor and Health & Safety Officer in Southwark Council, who was victimised by his employer with the collusion of UNISON bureaucrats; and

Alberto Einstein Durango, a cleaner activist who played an important role in the victory of cleaners at Schroders in the City of London and is now helping with the Mitie/Willis campaign in the face of resistance by the Unite union.


All are welcome to come and take part in the debate.
