Latest podcast: PCS elections - the struggle for fighting trade unionism

https://www.socialistparty.org.uk/main/Podcasts

How can the trade unions, as the main mass organisations of the working class, be organised to fulfil their full potential in the fight against Tory Covid austerity?

In this episode we speak to Marion Lloyd, the socialist candidate for president of the PCS union which organises civil service workers and national government workers on privatised contracts.

Marion is standing on the Broad Left Network list, See details here: pcsbln.wordpress.com/

This episode of Socialism looks at the major issues confronting the working class - from the fight against Tory Covid austerity, to defending the right to protest, to the fight against the oppression, injustice and inequality revealed even more ruthlessly by the pandemic - and the role of the trade unions.

We look at the fight within the unions for the leadership required in order for the trade unions to play their potential role in these struggles.

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.

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 click here to donate to our Fighting Fund.
