The second Manchester Class Struggle Forum will host a discussion on trade unions, trade unionism and class struggle.
After the collapse of the global financial bubble, the working class is being made to pay. In Britain workers have started to fight back, in the form of a series of strikes and workplace occupations. There are stories in the media warning of a return to ‘union power’, but what does this mean and is it a good thing for the working class?
The meeting takes place from 7pm on Thursday 1st April at Friends Meeting House, 6 Mount Street, Manchester M2 5NS. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to express your interest or ask for more info.
Each meeting comes with a number of recommended texts which we think shed light on the subject of discussion, highlighting points of interest and debate. While reading the texts is not essential, they provide a useful primer to the issues covered.
