The wrong slogan

January 30th, 2009 § 2 comments


Those few who are raising slogans like ‘British jobs for British workers’ need to sort their arguments out, because they’re wrong and they’re misleading, and they seriously damage the prospects for solidarity. What’s more, they got that slogan from Gordon Brown, and that itself should warn them that there’s something wrong with it.

This is about the way Italian workers, who aren’t responsible for this problem, are being used in an attempt to break trade union organisation among construction workers in the UK, and in particular to break the terms of previous agreements. If it was about anything else, why would the employers exclude them from the jobs in advance? Why shouldn’t the jobs be open to anyone?
