US unions resolve dispute :)

Having blogged here in the past about correspondence from US Union UNITE HERE concerning their problems with UNISON’s sister union, the SEIU, I am pleased to be able to link to the announcement that the inter-union hostilities in the US are at an end.

It does seem that the recent change in the leadership of the SEIU may have brought that important trade union back on track. Trade unions need to be democratic and to be controlled by their members if we are to have effective collective organisation to defend our interests as workers.

Since UNISON is rightly working with the SEIU on the Three Companies Project, it is good to see that this dispute is at an end.
