May Day greetings: Lend your support to the fight against the bosses

May Day Greetings 2017

William Jarrett, Socialist Party Northern region May Day greetings organiser

Across the north, one of England's most industrially combative regions, shop stewards and rank-and-file trade unionists have relied on the Socialist newspaper to provide support and solidarity in disputes with employers.

At Tyneside Safety Glass, Kone lifts and escalators, Mears housing, Barbour clothing, and in the public sector, the Socialist has been there, helping to link up workers' struggles, and supporting trade unionists' discussions on how to win.

The Socialist also links fighting workers in England and Wales to the struggle for decent working conditions and socialism across the world.

In 2017-18 readers sent solidarity to Serbian postal workers in struggle, where bosses had viciously attacked terms and conditions and sacked the workers' leaders. Our fight with the bosses is global, and the Socialist consistently puts that fight front and centre for readers.

Through its reports of the work of the Committee for a Workers' International - the world socialist organisation the Socialist Party is affiliated to - as well as its coverage of the National Shop Stewards Network, we count on the Socialist to be a sounding board for the workers' movement.

Why not lend your voice? May Day greetings in the Socialist are a perfect way to reach thousands of readers across our movement, and help support the paper which works for their victory.


Your branch, committee or trades council - as well as campaign group or student society - can agree a suitable size and send us the image or ask us to design it for you. Join us in celebrating International Workers' Day 2018 with the socialist newspaper for workers and youth. Place greetings in the pages of the Socialist!

Workplaces - and any union bodies which can't send greetings - can use a sign-up sheet to get donations and book greetings from supporters

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.
