Support the Northern Ireland classroom assistants

CLASSROOM ASSISTANTS in Northern Ireland are continuing their strike action against attacks on their pay and conditions. Members of the union representing the majority of the workers, NIPSA, voted by 93.4% in favour of strike action.

In spite of a dirty tricks campaign by the employers, the strikes have been well supported by other workers and by parents, who have shown their support on the picket lines and on demonstrations. The workers are now striking for two days every week up to Christmas.

This is a crucial dispute for the whole of the public sector in Northern Ireland a victory would be a victory for all public-sector workers but a defeat would open the door for more attacks from the Northern Ireland Assembly.

  • More than 70 medical secretaries, also members of NIPSA, are involved in strike action at Altnagelvin hospital, Londonderry. They are fighting an overtime ban.

    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.
