For far too long major segments of the working class have been dormant under the illusion that change can be delegated to exterior organizations or parties. When our struggles are bureaucratized and delegated to others, we lose ownership over them and in turn lose many benefits gained through them. A victory for the working class can only be established if our class is active in the struggle leading to victory. [Italiano] [Castellano] read full story / add a comment

Per troppo tempo i maggiori segmenti della classe lavoratrice se ne sono stati dormienti nell'illusione che il mutamento potesse essere delegato ad organizzazioni esterne o ai partiti. Quando le nostre lotte cadono vittime delle burocrazie e vengono delegate ad altri, noi ne perdiamo la titolarità ed il controllo con la conseguente perdita di molte conquiste ottenute tramite esse. Una vittoria della classe lavoratrice è possibile solo se è la nostra classe a guidare le lotte alla vittoria. [English] read full story / add a comment

On Friday 31st July workers at Thomas Cook occupied the shop on Grafton street. Management got a court injunction against the occupation and on Monday morning a huge force of Gardai sealed off the area, smashed their way into the shop and arrested the 28 workers inside. The workers at Thomas Cook were fighting for a better redundancy package. To the approximately €700,000 offered by the company, the workers are demanding an added €300,000. That afternoon the High Court released the workers and negotiations were started on an improved redundancy package. The articles were written by WSM members involved in supporting the struggle of the Thomas Cook workers. read full story / add a comment

Anti-union lawyers and consultants like Goldschmidt are big business here in Portland. Employers first hire them to fight off organizing campaigns. Once the union is in place, the lawyers do battle with workers at the bargaining table. And even in stable union workplaces, union busters lurk in the shadows, constantly strategizing about how to keep workers down. read full story / add a comment
