They're coming from all directions -- Reith's second wave, Kemp's assault on the students, the Employment Advocate sitting on his hands and Rio Tinto up to its usual tricks.
Uglies From All Angles
For a union movement which worked constructively with the community for more than a decade in the national interest, the attacks from so many fronts sometimes seems unjust.
Now we are having our "workplace revolution". Except here the assault comes from those in power, rather than those without it; egged on by accountants who can't be bothered looking up from their balance sheets to consider the real world. A weird revolution indeed.
Thanks to the nearly 2,000 readers who are already subscribers to Workers Online, we trust Issue #2 arrives in your mailbox in one piece. If you haven't subscribed yet, please follow the links to the form.
We've also been honoured to be named LabourStart's International Web Site of the Week. While we haven't got a links engine yet, this is one site all trade unionists should cheek out regularly. You can find it at http://www.labourstart.org.
Finally, thanks to all those who have sent us feedback. We're still working out the Letters to the Editors so they won't all be posted this week. For those who want to contribute, the best thing to do is email your stories as attachments and send to [email protected].
Hope you enjoy the issue.
