Join us in Liverpool next week

The trade unions remain the mass organisations of the labour movement. Until we forge more radical trade unions (and history has shown the difficulty of achieving this), the trade unions are where workers are learning to organise and fight for themselves as workers, as a class. They are held back by the Labour machine and it’s bureaucrats who put the interests of the Labour Party and it’s electoral fortunes above the interests of the rank and file. For that reason we support calls to open up the discussion on disaffiliation, it is a call for trade union independence from Labour, the freedom to put rank and file members interests first.
