VICTORY FOR CONSTRUCTION WORKERS!!
SACKED LINDSEY STRIKERS ALL REINSTATED!
TRADE UNION CONSULTATION ON ALL FUTURE GENUINE REDUNDANCIES!
FRATERNAL GREETINGS FROM LINDSEY STRIKE COMMITTEE
Lindsey Strike Committee & all sacked construction workers send fraternal greetings to our brothers and sisters who sent messages of support during our two week strike against the multi-national company Total - every message of solidarity sent to LOR strikers was immediately posted onto the 'Bearfacts' construction worker website. Please accept LOR worker's Victorious Fraternal Greetings and Sincere Thanks for your message of solidarity and support.
The messages of solidarity gave heart felt resolve to LOR strikers & construction workers on other UK sites who voted with their feet to support LOR strikers and defend the NAECI agreement that outlines our pay, terms and conditions.
All sacked workers at LOR are to be reinstated - all redundancies have been rescinded - all future genuine redundancies will go through proper trade union & individual consultation - brothers and sisters!! Unofficial strike action and 'total solidarity' of workers nationally and internationally has banished victimisation, created jobs - stopped redundancies in their tracks on the LOR site!!
Already news reports are stating that the bosses are worried about how this unofficial strike action will effect the actions of other workers in the future!!
Spread the news - the workers united will never be defeated!!

Coronavirus crisis - Finance appeal
The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.
The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.
The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.
- The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
- Our 'fighting coronavirus workers' charter', outlines a programme to combat the virus and protect workers' living conditions.
- When the health crisis subsides, we must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our special coronavirus appeal.
