IWW commence build-up for major assault on NBS bosses

category ireland / britain | workplace struggles | press release author Monday December 10, 2007 11:19author by IWW NBS - IWWauthor email iww.nbs at gmail dot com Report this post to the editors

With new phase of IWW campaign against 600 job cuts, the wobblies launch massive recruitment drive.

The IWW is fighting a major campaign against the centralisation and cuts within England's National Blood service. This release relates the latest phase of the wobbly campaign, which aims to reverse the plans.

Keep it local.
Keep it local.

As part of the IWW's fightback against NBS bosses the IWW has set itself the ambitious task of bringing more people on board to the Save
Our National Blood Service campaign.

Wobblies aim to bring the number of public supporters of the campaign to over a thousand by the end of the week, by signing up hundreds of
new campaign participants on the social networking site facebook and through increasing the volume of campaign emails, public stalls and public
visibility.

"This is an ambitious drive, but we think we can do it!" comments campaign activist and wobbly Joe Rutherford.

"We need to build momentum for our big assault in January. It's crucial to the campaign so we are devoting a lot of time to this objective." Joe continues.

So far the number of people joining the campaign has really begun to take off. With less than 500 supporters in email contact last month the campaign now boasts nearly 750. With every new member wobblies contend that the community and mass public campaign grows in strength. A review is currently taking place into the cuts, which will be published in January. The IWW believe that building support for a major fightback in January is crucial to the success of the campaign

"We can reach our target of 1000 members by the end of the week. When we do we can really start to increase our impact on a national scale. This campaign is getting stronger every day. This is massive, but we need to be ready to take serious action in January. We are going to win this campaign, so are going to put ourselves in a position to do that."

Our solidarity today (11/02) to the LUAS workers striking for decent pay rates. The crisis was used by the government and capitalist class to drive down wages and ensure that a bigger share of profits went to shareholders. The LUAS fight is a fight for all of us as a victory should be a green light to all workers to demand pay rises, including the recovery of the money lost in the cuts imposed under the crisis. Across the world the share of income that goes to the richest 1% has soared while that going tooth rest of us has been slashed, we need to fight to reverse this.

textDublin Mayday : Join The Get Up Stand Up Bloc At The Trades Union March 17:27 Thu 21 Apr by James R 0 comments

From fast food outlets, to assembly lines, from corner shops to hyper markets there is one common relationship. That is the relationship between boss and worker. Those of us that have to sell our time as workers enabling us to pay rent, buy food and engage in leisure activities have nothing in common with those who buy our time. Those of us that sell our time are the employee class. Those that buy our labour are the employing class. These two classes have nothing in common.

imageLuas Strikes: Rage Against the Regime Media Feb 23 by Tom Murray 0 comments

To all of Ireland’s regime media - just what exactly is your problem with striking Luas workers?

The media demonising striking Luas workers suits their boss, Transdev, just fine. However, demonising striking workers suits your boss just fine too.

imageCroke Park proposal shows why we have to take our unions back & organise to win Mar 22 by Andrew Flood 0 comments

We have to ask ourselves how we have found ourselves in unions where the leadership was allowed take such an approach. And we have to work out how we create unions that we control and which will help us organise together to defend our common interests. How has it come to this?

imageVoting NO to Croke Park - what happens next? Mar 20 by Andrew Flood 0 comments

The government says if we Vote no to Croke Park they will impose it anyway. Many of the union leadership try and scare us into voting Yes with this threat and by saying the only alternative is strike action. Both are right. If we just vote no than the government will attack us. And when they do the only way we can win is if we are willing to fight back - that will mean industrial action. It will almost certainly mean at least the credible threat of an indefinite strike.
