Issue 2301

The 2.6 million-strong strike on 30 November last year showed workers’ desire to fight.

Since then workers have voted repeatedly to keep striking.

This week health workers in the Unison union voted to reject the government’s derisory pensions offer.

Yet Unison leaders say there’s no strike mandate. They refused to campaign or even give a recommendation in the ballot. The rejection vote shows determination to fight.

The NUT union’s conference voted not to wait for the NASUWT union to strike.

Teachers are now fighting for their union leadership to enact this.

The Unite union is only calling out some of its 100,000 health members on 10 May.

But workers feel stronger striking together.

And strikes are how unions grow.

We need joint national action and to escalate. Defeating the Tories on pensions makes it much easier to win on other issues.

Workers must mount the pressure to join the strikes and get the next dates named quickly, because we can win.
