Where we stand

The capitalist class takes its wealth and power from the unpaid labour of the working-class. For their part, workers have no choice but to combine and fight for their political, economic and social interests.

The trade union movement needs to let the world know its position on what is going on in society both locally and internationally. However, commenting on events is not enough, the point is to intervene and force change. This is why we organise the unorganised.
