World Day for Decent Work

I am pondering the irony of having a day off on World Day for Decent Work (http://www.wddw.org/).



Decent work is a modest aspiration but one which cannot consistently be achieved in a society in which labour power is a commodity.



Nevertheless, collective organisation in the workplace can make our working lives far more tolerable - not least by winning an adequate amount of annual leave.



Decent work will, of course, be further away for many public servants if the ConDems get their way with cuts in jobs and a pay freeze.



Normal blogging (and the remainder of my NEC report) will be resumed as soon as possible...
