Beating the Bosses: What Do We Need to Win?
Notes From Below

Add to calendar

If a strike can be understood as a race between bosses and workers as to who runs out of money first, it’s obvious that we need to strengthen the infrastructure of the union movement in order to win. This means overhauling restrictive legislation, building strike funds and strengthening the relationships between workplace and community organisations. What strategies can we develop to ensure workplace struggles can go the distance in hostile conditions? And what role can the Labour Party play?
