National Shop Stewards Network conference: International rally planned

Next month's conference of the National Shop Stewards Network (NSSN) comes at a vital time for the trade union movement. And the conference will now include an international solidarity rally, as part of the Week of Solidarity initiative by left MEPs (see also page 3).

There will be speakers from Spain, Ireland and Greece who have all been involved in organising action against the bosses' attacks.

Speakers in the main conference, in a personal capacity, will include Janice Godrich, president of the PCS, Matt Wrack, general secretary of the FBU and Steve Hedley, London RMT regional secretary.

There will be ten workshops on many issues, including fighting the cuts, organising against racism and fascism, building the trade unions amongst young people, and climate change.

Make sure you book a place at this important meeting.

  • To register send 5 to NSSN, PO Box 58262, London N1P 1ET, with your details, including workplace and trade union.
  • Encourage your trade union branch or workplace to sponsor the conference - suggested minimum 20.

    For more details see www.shopstewards.net or email info@shopstewards.net

    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.
