Sparks fight continues

London sparks continued the fight against deskilling by again targeting offices of landlords Landsec, Land Securities Group, because NG Bailey has its maintenance contract.

NG Bailey is still looking to use the electrical service operator (ESO) grade to attack electricians' wages by employing unskilled labour.

As the protesting workers left the building, they warned that the campaign against ESO will be stepped up, just days after sparks walked off site in Whitby in North Yorkshire and blockaded a job in Cardiff. This will include protests at retail parks, where NG Bailey has jobs or maintenance contracts.

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.
