Leave behind the sad pathetic friends of the boss union officials. Leave theold worn out soft unions.

Join the Independent Workers Union.

Council workers fed up with your union officials telling you to break the blockades, obey anti working class instructions from the bosses?

Well then why not join a union that will back you up, that responds to its members democratic wishes.

The Independent Workers Union is the place for you.

ICTU faces a row tomorrow when David Begs moves to slash the resources of the northern ireland office. He has had a series of meetings where pressure has been put on unions to accept the changes due to the cash crisis in ICTU HQ but northern unions are not happy at having a gun put to their head.

why dont we put the energies of setting up 'new' unions into reclaiming the current unions. I want to see 'one big union' of te working class, what's the point in setting up IWU?

You surely don't need to be told the point of the IWU. You obviously don't agree with it, and you may be right regarding One Big Union. Or, at least, the need to recapture the unions from the bureaucrats. But please don't belittle the IWU with such an ill-considered remark. Thank you.
