Socialist Worker

Over 150 trade union activists marched through driving snow and winds to lobby the Scottish Labour Party conference in Perth last Saturday. Some coaches were prevented from attending due to the snowfalls. John McAllion, the Labour MSP, spoke at a rally against privatisation after the lobby.

Other speakers at the rally documented the reality of working under the disaster of PPP. Speakers from the Post Office and Scottish Power, and pensioners all spoke about how workers were sick of profit being put before people. John McAllion said, 'I'm fighting for what I believe in-I'll see it through to the end.'
