Around 7,000 British Gas engineers, members of the GMB trade union, are continuing their strike action because the company bosses have refused to withdraw their 'fire and rehire' contract which would leave workers on worse pay and conditions. The engineers remain determined to defeat the plans of this profitable company, as reflected in the nearly four weeks of combined strike action.

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.

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 Fighting Fund.

Please donate here.

All payments are made through a secure server.
