British Airways strike

We need to do more than applaud the determination of UNITE members at what is becoming known as "Brutish Airways" to stand up to their bullying management.

The media, courts, political establishment and many other employers have rallied around Willie Walsh's attempt to break union organisation at BA. They hope that a defeat for UNITE can make it easier to push through cuts and their wider agenda of making working people pay for an economic crisis that was triggered by the greed and irresponsibility of the rich and powerful.

There's a useful article about the strike on the United Left web site.

Donations to the campaign fund can be sent to:
