Fackföreningarna här över står inför Konservativa Partiets attacker på många rättigheter man kämpat för i decennier. Dags att ställa sig upp! Ähm, eller ja, skriva under på ett upprop. Och skriva en liten sak för sakens skull:
You belong to a union for much the same reason you tie your bootlaces: otherwise you trip up. And you belong to the union that deals directly with the work you do. In my time I’ve been a member of the Swedish Metal Workers Union, because I worked at the Volvo car factory for a year in the 70’s. I was part of Swedish Equity for a while, when I wrote and acted in plays. After 43 years in Britain, I’m now a member of the NUJ because I write mostly in English, it’s my root language; because the state of British journalism concerns me greatly; because our rights and conditions are being undermined almost daily; and finally because I can think of no better organisation to protect the freedom of the press, and freedom of speech generally. – Gunnar Pettersson
Så nu vet ni det. Också. Up the workers!
