OneBarnet - one fight against privatisation

UNISON members in Barnet, as part of their exemplary struggle against the madcap privatisation plans of the Thatcherite faction of their local Tory Party (http://www.jonrogers1963.blogspot.com/2012/01/barnet-fair.html), will be taking strike action on 9 February (http://www.barnetunison.me.uk/?q=node/756). More power to their elbows!



This is very much the same fight which PCS members in HMRC have been waging recently (http://www.pcs.org.uk/en/news_and_events/news_centre/index.cfm/id/6DEA4154-0A65-45CD-9EACDB423509ADCD) - against privatisation driven by dogma.



Public service workers need trade union unity in the fight to defend our public services. How we build, rebuild and sustain that unity may be the most important question with which union activists need to grapple.
