One side effect of the disruption has been an increasingly strong trade union. From the long-running strike of 1971 to the more recent industrial actions, the Communication Workers Union has galvanised its members into activity to save jobs and a public service. Now the Tories are trying again and we can itemise the likely consequences of their action –
- There will be closures of offices as rationalisation takes hold;
- Many full time jobs will go with replacement by low paid. reduced rights staff;
- Costs to the public will be greatly increased as we have seen from the privatised utilities;
- Differential market rates will result in massive cuts to distant rural areas;
- “Human resources” scams will result in more unemployment and social disruption.
We urge everyone to come to the meeting as a start to this campaign. We will have a CWU speaker who must remain anonymous to avoid victimisation. Cameron is determined to press ahead with the social disruption as his persistence over the NHS privatisation has shown. Governments have little else to do but devise schemes to reduce living standards, increase unemployment , and cut public and welfare services – all in the name of “the market” or greater profits for his millionaires' Cabinet.
