Back to work

Back to work today – so no more of this or this. Back instead to this and this.

I’m sorry to see the news that thousands more cases are being taken against trade unions by no win no fee solicitors on behalf of members claiming that the unions have not fought hard enough to secure equal pay.

If members don’t think our unions are fighting hard enough (on any issue) the answer is to stand for election and try to change things, not to litigate.

Of course our union leaderships need to be receptive to criticism and not respond in a hostile and defensive way to critics if democracy is going to function to advance and improve our unions…
