Socialist Worker

These strikes must win

Issue No. 2226


Three key battles are taking place in Britain. Their outcome will shape the movement against the bosses and the Tories. This week, firefighters and Tube workers in London struck to defend jobs and the quality of the services they provide.

Journalists at the BBC were set to join London firefighters in another strike on Friday and Saturday of this week. Strikers have won widespread support—despite management intimidation and media attacks. The whole trade union movement must back them. Victory would encourage workers everywhere to fight back.
